Especially if it is found through an MRI that the intervertebral discs are decreased in height, with bulging or displacement.

When the disc is displaced from its place, we usually speak of disc protrusion (foraminal, posteromedial, etc.), whereas when the annulus fibrosus ruptures, we speak of herniations (the most common occur between the L4 L5 and L5 S1 discs). This can produce an excess of pressure on the nearby nerves resulting in pain (see narrowing or diminution of the neuroforamen), numbness or weakening of movements.
