Answer: 
Disc Prolapse is yet another of the many names for a herniated disc. Prolapse means to slip out of place, hence the misleading colloquial nomenclature of slipped disc. There are many forms of prolapsed disc. The disc might simply bulge, creating an asymmetrical appearance despite the outer wall remaining intact. The disc might also suffer an annular tear and leak some of the inner core of the structure into the body cavity. This condition is often known as a ruptured disc. The main criteria for a prolapsed disc is that the integrity structure has been compromised, creating a bulge, weakness or actual hole in the outer disc wall.
