Latest blog post from our client, Dr. Matthew D. Hepler about 3 Signs You May Have a Slipped Disc

A slipped disk is a common spinal injury. A slipped disc may also be referred to as a herniated disc, bulging disc, protruding disc, or a ruptured disc.

Spinal discs sit between the vertebrae, where they provide cushioning and support. Spinal discs provide shock absorption to the bones of the spine. When strong and flexible, they help the spine lift, twist, and bend fluidly.

It is natural for discs to become stiff and less flexible with age, known as disc degeneration. Discs are then more prone to injury or damage.

A slipped disc or herniated disc occurs when the outer shell of the disc tears or breaks. It releases the disc’s inner fluid into the spinal canal. Slipped discs commonly occur along the lumbar and cervical regions of the spine.

A slipped disc can cause significant pain and weakness. Sometimes, it can be challenging to walk or even stand. This article will address three common signs of a slipped disc.
