    Lumbar Hernia Stages

    Stage One: Brown Disc, Degenerate Disc
    Herniated disc begins with the deterioration of the structure of the disc. In the deformed disc, the outer capsule (annulus) weakens and tiny tears begin to form. With this process, the nucleus inside the disc dries up and loses its ability to stretch, bend, and absorb impacts. This stage is the beginning level of herniated disc and is called Disc Wear, Disc Degeneration, Degenerated Disc. Normally, on MRI, the color of the disc appears white, close to water. However, when disc degeneration develops, the amount of water in the nucleus decreases, so the disc appears blacker than it normally would. For this reason, these discs are also called Brown Discs. In the initial stage, herniated disc may not cause any symptoms or may only cause low back pain with strain.
    Stage Two: Bulging
    Tears increase on the damaged outer layer (annulus) of the spine and the soft texture inside begins to bulge outward. Since it is at the beginning, the dishedness is more vague. At this stage, the hernia may not cause any symptoms or may only cause low back pain.
    Third Stage: Protrusion
    Over time, the amount of tiny tears in the annulus increases, thus weakening the annulus. This dishedness is called Protrusion and the dished disc is called Protruded disc. Depending on the dished area, it may cause only severe low back pain or severe back and leg pain, as well as numbness and weakness in the leg.
    Fourth Stage: Sequestration
    The same process happens in the fourth stage; dierently, the protruding fragment breaks o and remains as an independent piece in the spinal canal. This event is called Sequestration and the fragment is called Sequestrated Disc Fragment or Free Fragment. All other features, symptoms, and treatment of a Stage Five hernia are the same as for Stage Four hernias.
