    A slip disk is actually called a slipped disc. It refers to the soft cushion-like material that sits between the vertebrae of your spine. Before someone tries to treat such a condition at home, he should consult his health care provider for any necessary precautions.

    A 'slipped' disc usually refers to a slight slippage of the cartilages that act as 'shock -absorbers' between two vertebra. all along our spine there are fine discs that are flexible material and protect one bony vertebra in our spine from rubbing against the other. As we age these become frayed but occasionally they may 'prolapse' between the bones and press on the nerves that come out of the spinal cord.

    A minor slipped disc may correct itself after the initial pain and muscle spasm and many can live with 'partial slippage' after physical therapy, weight loss and exercises. . In major slippage or  with long standing problems you can undergo an operation called laminectomy with discectomy  where the slipped disc is trimmed and removed from rubbing against the nerves.

    The bones of the spine (vertibrae) have cartillage discs between them to allow flexibility without bone end rubbing together
    A slipped disc is when the soft part of the disc bulges through the circle of  tissue. This bulge may push on the spinal cord or on the nerve roots. However, it is worth noting that 20 per cent of the population have slipped discs without experiencing any noticeable symptoms.

    The term 'slipped disc' does not really describe the process properly - the disc does not actually slip out of place, but bulges out towards the spinal cord.

    It is a medical condition that affects the spine, wherein a tear in the outer ring of an intervertebral disc allows the soft, central portion to bulge out. This is extremely painful. People who always lift heavy objects more susceptible to this.
