First, what is a disc herniation?
The disc is a semisolid structure that acts as a shock absorber between the bones of your spine. The center is composed of a jelly-like substance called the nucleus pulposis. Picture a jelly donut made of cartilage the inside part would be the gelatinous nucleus pulposis. When you suffer a disc herniation the outer disc area made of cartilage tears and the center, the jelly-like part leaks out, often putting pressure on the nerves, hence you experience pain down your arm or leg depending on where the herniation is located.
