Treatment Options for Your Herniated Disc
If you have lower back pain that radiates down your hip and leg, you might have a herniated disc. A disc is a spongy piece of tissue that acts as a cushion between the vertebrae in your spine. The inside of the disc has a substance that is thick like jelly so it can absorb shock. When a disc herniates, the jelly bursts through the covering of the disc so the cushioning effect is lost.
