A ruptured disc, also called a herniated disc, is a common condition that occurs when one of the spinal discs develops a crack in its tough outer wall and its inner disc material is pushed out into the spinal canal. This can result in pain and other symptoms if any displaced disc material puts pressure on the spinal cord or an exiting nerve root.
