Discs separate the spinal vertebrae. These discs provide cushioning to the spine and space between the vertebrae. Disc herniation occurs when part of the disc moves between vertebra hitting the nerve root and spinal cord goes producing various injuries. This can be due to trauma (falls, injuries, accidents) or degenerative changes of the spine.
