Herniated Disc Series - Part 4: What Are Herniated Discs? (Video)

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Fri, Jun 02, 2017 @ 04:17 PM


In the first three parts in this series we have discussed the following:

  • Part 1 began the discussion of Herniated Discs by giving some basic information about the spine and then explaining how the disc can become damaged and then herniate.
  • The second part was all about what can cause a Herniated Disc, which can vary from aging to strain to some sort of trauma. We also discussed some risk factors associated with Herniated Discs.
  • And in Part 3 we covered the most common symptoms of a Herniated Disc, which include pain on one side of the body, numbness or tingling, and muscle weakness. We also talked about a few common situations that can trigger these symptoms.

The following video is a recap of what we have discussed about Herniated Discs so far. It contains some animation that can help you better understand just what Herniated Discs are, how they happen, and what they do:


We made this video because it is vitally important that you understand as much about Herniated Discs as possible. As we have said before, our clinical experience is that the more that you understand your problem, the more likely you are to eliminate it.



At the Illinois Back Institute we strive to educate people as much as possible about their back, neck, and sciatica pain, because it has been proven that the more people know about their pain the more likely they will be to get rid of it!
