Back and neck radiating pain
If you experiencing arm or leg pain, numbness or tingling or muscle weakness, you may have a herniated disc of the back or neck
A herniated disc (HC) can occurs anywhere along the spine. Most often, it is seen in the lower back but it also occur in the neck. About 80% of people experience back pain sometime during their lifetime. Very often this back and leg pain is caused by a HC that presses on the spinal cord and nerves.

What causes Herniated Disc?
Between the vertebrae of your spine are soft discs. They let your spine twist and bend. They absorb shocks. But if damaged, the disc's soft center can push through the disc wall. That's a herniated disc. This bulge presses against nerves in your spine.
