Disc Problems

Discs, or ‘Intervertebral discs’ are the spongy cushions that separate the block-like bones (vertebrae) of the spine. These discs have a number of important functions including shock absorption, keeping the vertebral column stable and giving the vertebrae ‘pivot points’ to allow movement. The symptoms of a damaged disc can vary according to its location and severity. General symptoms include back pain, pain radiating down legs, pain associated with sitting, bending, coughing, or sneezing, numbness or pins and needles down an arm or leg.
