About the Axis Scientific Lumbar Model with Prolapsed Disc:
Did you know that a prolapsed disc and herniated disc are the same things? Though more commonly referenced as a "herniated disc," this lumbar model with prolapsed disc shows what happens to the lumbar region of your spine when the inner disc (or, "nucleus pulposus") bulges through a weakness in the outer disc, often causing inflammation, pain and/or a pinched nerve. With this lumbar model, students, teachers, patients, or professionals will be able to further visualize what inflamed discs look like between the vertebrae and secluded from the spine.
