Anatomy of the Spine:

Spine surgeon in PuneThe human spine is vital to structure for mobility and stability. It starts below the brain and runs upto the tail bone (coccyx). The spinal cord has nerves that start from the spinal cord and runs into different parts of the body. These nerves transmit signals from the brain and spine to other parts of the body.  Also, there are 24 mobile vertebrae surrounding the spine. Between every two vertebrae discs (cushion like structures) are present, which allow mobility to vertebrae. Ligaments are also there which helps in movement of bones one over another.

Herniated Disk

The disc contains soft jelly-like material at the centre surrounded by hard fibrous material.  The disc acts like a shock absorber and absorbs body weight. It also helps in body movement. Sometimes disc becomes so hard that it can not move and unable to bear the weight of the body. Thus disc can lead to damage and comes out of hard surrounding material.  Slip disc is a condition in which disc comes out of damaged external hard material. This can lead to back, neck, leg and arm pain.
