Your Need-To-Know Guide on Discs
The discs in your body are your intervertebral or spinal discs. These all-important joints are your body’s shock absorbers for the spine, functioning as supporting structures and allowing marginal mobility. Spinal discs comprise two main parts: a tough outer shell and a gelatinous core.
These discs may receive damage when strained beyond normal limits, or they become injured during athletic activities, work due to repetitive motion, or you sustain personal or auto injuries. This may include herniated or slipped discs where the gel part bulges out of the hard outer layer into the spinal canal. This displacement can cause severe pain due to the limited space within this area of the body and is most common in the lumbar or lower back region.
In addition to the damage due to injury, the disc gradually degenerates as we age, and the ligaments begin to weaken, making us more vulnerable to disc issues. There is also a familial predisposition to suffering from disc issues, and certain diseases and chronic illnesses may also impact your spinal discs.
