Discs are small, rubbery pads that serve as a cushion between the vertebrae, or the bones that make up the spinal column.

When a disc herniates, the gel-like center of the disc pushes on the hard outer cartilage ring, causing pressure on the spinal cord. The spinal nerves are very sensitive, so even this small amount of pressure can result in pain, numbness, or even weakness down into the legs.
