If you get injured, like a herniation, bulged disk, degenerative disk disease, etc,... the space that the disk takes up begins to narrow. As time and age progresses, the space between the vertebras decrease. If you experience an injury such as a hernia, bulged disk, degenerative disk disease, etc,.. the space between the disks start to narrow. As time or age progresses, the space usually gets more and more narrower, sometimes adding pressure to the nerves, and causing some degree of pain.
