Location of Herniated Discs as they occur
Approximately 90 percent of disc herniation occur in the lower back at the L4- L5 level (lumbar segments 4 and 5) or L5- S1 level (lumbar segment 5 and sacral segment 1). When a herniated disc occurs in these areas, it can place pressure on the L5 nerve root or S1 nerve root, respectively, resulting in pain and other symptoms. Herniated discs are most often diagnosed in the lumbar region of the spine, butcervical herniated discs(in the neck) are not unheard of and occur in about 10 percent of patients.
