Top neurosurgeon Dr. Shah discusses what you should know about herniated discs.
You may have heard the term "slipped disc", "ruptured disc", or "disc popped out". What these terms are referring to are disc herniations. Disc herniations are common, especially in the lower back.
At our practice, here at Princeton Brain and Spine, we treat this condition regularly and often in a minimally invasive fashion. A lumbar disc herniation is a common cause of low back pain and leg pain. Discs are shock absorbers in your spine. They are located between the bones or vertebrae in your spine. Each disc contains a thin "tire-like" outer core called the annulus fibrosis which in turn surrounds a gel-like substance called the nucleus pulposus.
