Disc herniation


Disc herniation is a disease of the intervertebral discs - the connecting element between the individual vertebral bodies. The intervertebral disc consists of a coarse hard shell (fibrous ring) and a soft cloth inside. Together with small intervertebral joints and other connective tissue connections, the intervertebral discs provide the mobility of the spine and serve as shock absorbers to soften the impact of body movements.
