A herniated disc, also known as a slipped disc or ruptured disc, occurs when the soft, jelly-like material inside the spinal disc bulges or ruptures through the disc’s tough exterior. This can cause the disc to press against nearby nerves, leading to pain, numbness, or weakness in the affected area. Herniated discs most commonly occur in the lower back, but they can also occur in the neck or other areas of the spine.
