Slipped Disc

Slipped Disc

A slipped disc, also referred to as a herniated or bulging disc, is a spinal condition in which the outer wall of the disc becomes punctured and the inner core is exposed. As the soft core leaks out, this can place pressure on the surrounding nerves or spinal cord. This condition can appear in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar region of the spine.

Causes of a Slipped Disc

There is no single cause of a slipped disc, only a few factors that can contribute to this condition. A slipped disc can be caused by the following factors:

  • Age: Discs can be subject to natural degeneration over time and may lead to a slipped disc.
  • Injuries: Traumatic accidents and sports can lead to injuries that could alter the structure of the spine and cause this condition.
  • Weight: Excess weight can place pressure on the spine and result in a slipped disc.
