Herniated Disc

It’s common to hear the terms “ruptured disc” and “slipped disc.” People often assume that everyone who has back pain has a ruptured disc. However, a true herniated nucleus pulposus (the medical name for this problem) is not very common.

A true herniated nucleus pulposus is most common in young and middle-aged adults. It rarely occurs in children. Degenerative changes in the spine that occur with aging actually make it less likely to develop a true herniated disc. This is because the nucleus in the middle of the disc dries out, making it less likely to squeeze out of the disc. READ MORE
