A herniated disc is a problem with one of the gel pads that act as shock absorbers between the individual spine bones (vertebrae). The discs in the lower back and neck can dehydrate, deteriorate, slip, collapse, protrude, rupture, or tear over time. The damaged disc(s) can irritate nearby nerves and cause pain, weakness, numbness, or radiating pain in the legs or arms.
