LUMBAR AND NECK HERNIA
There are 5 vertebrae in our neck and 7 in the waist. Among these bones, there are cartilage structures called disc. The discs contribute to the mobility of the spine, as well as a balanced distribution of the loads on the spine. Neck and lumbar hernias are caused by disruption and overflow of discs which are acting like a shock absorber.
