This is obviously appealing for back-pain sufferers, but also healthy back populations, too. One study revealed that in a random sample of 98 "healthy" asymptomatic backs, 64% of the subjects had a disk abnormality of some sort.
Also worth noting is that while the overall prevalence of disc abnormalities didn't change much with physical activity, the prevalence of disc protrusions at L5-S1 was higher in people that exercised regularly as compared to more sedentary folks (16% to 4%).
