What is the difference between Nerves and Nerve Roots?

The nerve roots are a bundle of nerves. Off the spinal cord comes nerve root that branch into nerves, that branch into smaller and smaller nerves.

When a disc puts pressure on a nerve, it is often a nerve root. When there's pressure nerve root there could be a number of symptoms associated with that.

There can also be pressure to a more distal individual nerve. Let's take an example. You have a herniated disc in the lower lumbar spine. This gives you back and leg pain all the way to the foot. Where as an individual who wore shoes that caused some foot pain, that pain is local to that area.
