Herniated disc in the neck region is different from that in the lumbar region. Herniated/bulging disc is also known as a slipped disc. Our spine is classified according to sections, thus, based on what we learned, the spinal column includes all the bones starting from the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral, and coccyx. Thus, these bones are protected by spinal discs so the body can move and do the twisting, bending, standing, walking, and lifting without hassle and pain.
Having a herniated disc condition, it is painful to make such movements. The discs in between the bones are made up of two parts, the nucleus or inner portion, a jelly-like cushion that produces protein to keep the discs healthy, and an outer layer that is made up of fibers and characterized as tough compared to the inner part.
