The spinal column is comprised of 33 vertebrae that are separated by discs, which serve as shock absorbers. These discs are made up of a rubber-like outer band that protects the gel-like nucleus. Herniated Discs occur when part of the nucleus of a spinal disc pushes through a fissure in the exterior.
