Spinal discs are important as they play a crucial role in shock absorbing between the vertebrae and supporting your body with a range of movements in all directions. Disc herniations happen with leaking some of its inner material that aggravates a nerve, triggering back pain and possibly pain down the leg. In severe cases, a herniated disc compresses the spinal cord causing consistent pain with weakness or sensation changes in the body.
Disc herniation may occur when you lift something heavy or twist the lower back with motions that add extra stress on the discs.
However, there are unexpected scenarios which disc herniation can occur.
