Lumbar Disc Herniation

A protruding or bulging of the padded areas, called discs, between the vertebrae in the back region. Most of the time, disc disease comes as a result of aging and the degeneration that occurs within the disc. Occasionally, severe trauma can cause a normal disc to herniate. Trauma may also cause an already herniated disc to worsen.
