Intervertebral disc disorders

An intervertebral disc disorder is a condition that includes deterioration, herniation, or other dysfunction of an intervertebral disc.

As people age, the nucleus pulposus begins to dehydrate, which limits its ability to transfer and distribute loads among the vertebrae. These loads are instead transferred non-uniformly through the anulus fibrosus, which undergoes progressive, structural deterioration. While this may not effect pain in some people, in others one or both of these may cause chronic pain.

Pain due to the inability of the dehydrating nucleus pulposus to absorb shock is called axial pain or disc space pain. One generally refers to the gradual dehydration of the nucleus pulposus as degenerative disc disease.
