Back and Neck Pain
About This Condition
A herniated or bulging disc refers to an issue with one of the cushions that sit between the individual vertebrae in the spine. Damaged discs can irritate nearby nerves which can result in pain, numbness or weakness particularly in the arms or legs. A herniated disc in the neck often causes shoulder or arm pain while herniated discus in the lumbar or lower spine tends to cause symptoms in the legs.
