Disc herniation refers to a problem with one of the discs located in between the vertebrae. Often called a slipped or ruptured disc, this occurs when some of the internal core encased in the disc pushes through a crack in its exterior. It can result in pain, weakness, or numbness in the arm or leg because nearby nerves on the spine are irritated. Most people feel better after a few weeks or months of non-surgical treatment such as medication and physical therapy.
