News just in from our client Dr. Matthew D. Hepler: All you need to know about disc issues

What is a “Slipped Disc”?

Healthy discs separate the bones in our spines from the neck down to our lower back. The term ‘slipped disc is commonly used to describe a source of back pain, but unfortunately, it is not a very precise term. After all, discs don’t really slip. They bulge, protrude, or herniate.

During everyday, natural movements, it is normal for discs to bulge a bit because of the pressure put on them, but it is not enough to affect the surrounding nerves. The pain begins when pressure is put on the nerves, which happens when a disc goes beyond its normal boundary. Symptoms vary depending on where the bulging disc is and what nerve it is pressing against.
