Do I Have a Slipped Disc?
No, it is not possible for discs to slip.
The disc is a pad-like tissue located between two vertebrae which acts as shock absorber for the spine.
The center of the disc is made of a fluid, soft, 'jelly-like' substance. When discs become damaged, tears can occur through which the soft center can leak out and push on the nerves.
This is know as a ruptured or herniated disc and is extremely painful.While results cannot be guaranteed, many patients have avoided needless surgery or a dependency on pain pills, by choosing Sydney Wide Chiropractic for their disc-related health problems.
Discs do not 'slip,' however, if damaged they can leak or rupture.
