Herniated Disc

The back pain is felt because of the annular injury. As the nuclear material moves toward the periphery of the disc or outside the disc, then pain may be felt in a part if the thigh, leg or foot that corresponds with the nerve being touched by the disc fragment. Think of these nerves like electrical wires passing from the back to the legs and feet. If the wires are contacted by something (disc fragment), then the wire signals trouble in the form of pain, numbness, or weakness.
