Animation of a woman with a prolapsed (or slipped) disc. This condition is caused when an intervertebral disc (yellow) is compacted or ruptures, and pushes against one of the nerves (orange) arising from the spinal cord. This causes pain, tingling, immobility and weakness, typically only on the affected side of the body.
