Herniation of the lumbar disc in children and adolescents. J Pediatr Orthop 1982;2:528 5 Chronic pathological changes The effects of acute and cumulative trauma result in progressive degenerative changes that affect both the intervertebral disc and the posterior facets and can be found at multiple levels of the spine. Multilevel degenerative changes can result in decreased mobility of the spine and even fusion between the intervertebral bodies. Disc herniation, especially when painful, also results in reduced mobility and diminished levels of activity.
