Slipped Disc

Sub-4 Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Clinic in Staffordshire, West Midlands

Slipped Disc

Slipped Disc, your spine is made up of a series vertebrae bones. From top your neck down, your spine includes 7 joints of the cervical spine then 12 joints in the thoracic spine and 5 joints in the lumbar spine at the bootm being the sacrum and the coccyx.

These joints are cushioned by discs which consist of the Annulus Fibrosus, (the tough flexible outer ring of the disk)and the Nucleus Pulposus (The soft, jelly-like center of the disk).

The disk starts to herniate, when its jelly like centre is forced against its outer joint ring, which can be caused by wear and tear or maybe a injury. It is this pressure against the outer ring, that may causes your lower back pain.
