In brief: Doctor
If you have a history of lumbar disc herniation or spinal stenosis, check with your doctor to see if the compression seen on imaging studies warrants concern.
If you have no history of lumbar issues, then your risk is extremely low of ever developing this condition in one's lifetime. There is no screening for this pathology for prevention.

I can't opine about ways to avoid complications unless i know what you are talking about as a potential trigger. Are you talking post-surgical, trauma, infectious? Get us more info and we can add content to the answer.
