Ghost Medical Presents: Understanding Lumbar Disc Prolapse

Ghost Medical Animation + VR Surgery
August 18, 2021


Learn about disc prolapse and the increased axial stress on the spine in this medically accurate video by Ghost Productions. Ideal for medical professionals.

This medically accurate video, produced in 2006 by Ghost Productions, focuses on the increased axial stress on the spine and how it can lead to disc prolapse. The video demonstrates how stress is absorbed into the disc annulus and how an overstressed annulus can result in the disc nucleus material being pushed through a tear in the annulus, commonly occurring in the posterior disc. This condition can cause pressure on the nerves, resulting in nerve root irritation and necrotic nucleus tissues that can also cause irritation. This video is an excellent educational resource for medical professionals and can be distributed freely on .edu and .org websites with an active link to
