Do discs slip?

A disc in the spine, neck or back, is a cushion between the vertebrae, that is like a thick slice of an onion, made out of cartilage, with a jelly-bean-like center. This cartilage is firmly attached to the vertebrae above and below it, so it cannot ‘slip’. The jelly bean in the center is as hard as a marble when fully supported by the strong rings of cartilage that surround it. But if small or large tears occur in these supportive rings of cartilage, the jelly bean center gets squeezed into the void, causing the outer rings to bulge.
