Discs separate the vertebrae and act as soft, compressible, shock absorbers throughout the spine. A herniated disc is one that has ruptured after being injured – bulging – and left untreated. Disc injuries cause a vast array of pain throughout the body and worsen through bending, twisting, and reaching movements.
