The discs in your back function as rubbery cushions between
the vertebrae (bones), which make up the spine. These discs act as natural
shock absorbers between the vertebrae. When a disc becomes damaged due to a
tear, a crack or a rupture, it can cause compression of the spinal nerves. This
is what we call a disc herniation.
