The function of the discs in your spine are mainly for shock absorption but also help with movement. They have pain fibers located in them.
As discs are damaged, inflammation occurs, and the fibers are excited causing pain.
More seriously, the disc can protrude outwards from a severe injury or an accumulative injury(s)
over time. This results in a severe inflammatory reaction that can directly encroach upon a
nerve, causing more intense symptoms down the length of the nerve.
