People between the ages of 20-40 are more likely to have a lumbar (low-back) disc bulge/herniation than any other age group. This is because this age group most commonly performs jobs/sports that are likely to cause this type of injury. Heavy lifting, repetitive lifting, extended time sitting (e.g., long-haul truckers) and working on your hands and knees (e.g., carpet installers and plumbers) are some of the most common causes of lumbar disc injuries.
