In brief: Disc herniation

A prolapsed disc is another way to refer to a disc herniation.
Most commonly seen on people aged 30-50 with a predominance in men. About one in 20 cases of acute low back pain are caused by a herniated lumbar disc. Other common symptoms include radiating pain, pins and needles, or numbness into the lower extremity, antalgia (painful gait), and rarely bowel or bladder dysfunction.

Increased pain with backward extension of the spine.
A degenerated disc will cause facet pain when bending backward. Most people are asymptomatic with mild DJD of the spine.
