Summary: Increased axial stress on spine is displayed. Stress is absorbed into disc annulus. Overstressed disc annulus can result in prolapse. This condition involves the disc nucleus material being pushed through a tear in the annulus, often occurring in the posterior disc. Pressure on the nerves commonly results, causing nerve root irritation. Resulting necrotic nucleus tissues can also cause irritation.
