Disc Prolapsed (slipped disc, herniated disc)
Slipped disc or also called disc prolapsed or herniated disc is another known cause of sciatica nerve trapped. A disc does not actually 'slip'. What happens is that part of the inner softer gel-like material (nucleus pulposus) of the disc bulges out (disc prolapsed) or herniated disc, through a weakness in the outer harder part (annulus fibrosus) of the disc.
Disc prolapsed can press on a sciatic nerve nearby and causes the sciatic nerve trapped. A prolapsed disc is sometimes called a herniated disc. Symptoms of back pain caused by slipped disc are severe pain that usually comes on suddenly. The pain is usually eased by lying down flat, and is often made worse if you move your back, cough, or sneeze. Patient feels sharp pain that makes it hard to move. It can start quickly if you fall or lift something too heavy, or it can get worse slowly.
