A hernia is the displacement of part or all of an organ from its normal location. There are many types of hernias.
Physically active people between the ages of 35 and 55 years have the greatest risk of developing a herniated disc. In fact, with age, the intervertebral discs become less flexible. As a result, the spine loses flexibility and tone, making it more difficult to perform physical activities. An awkward movement or excessive strain when lifting an object can also cause a herniation. Being overweight, pregnant or having bad posture can increase pressure on the back and predispose individuals to herniated discs.
