In brief: Depends on several
Things like the genetic or family history, where the discs are located, if the person smokes &/or is obese and whether the person regularly exercises in addition to a history of any prior back injuries or surgeries.
Disc aging has been demonstrated as early as 10 years of age and discs can herniate although rarer, in children.
