Most hernias occur in the back. Often the hernia is located between the lumbar vertebra and the sacrum. About 11,000 people undergo surgery for a hernia each year.
The vertebra can be divided into three areas. The lower part of the vertebrae is also called the "lumbar" vertebra. A lumbar disc herniation is a bulge of the soft core (Nucleus Pulposus) of a cartilaginous intervertebral disc. The cartilage protrudes slightly from the other intervertebral vertebrae. The bulge presses against the spinal cord or a nerve. This can cause pain or failure of the nerve.
