Re: t5 culciumfied ruptured disc
Good question! I believe it's a question of degree. Here's a quote from a medical reference site:
" As people age, the ligaments of the spine can thicken and harden (called calcification)."
Of course, this refers specifically to ligaments. I believe it is fair to say, however, that disk calcification _to some degree_ is also common with aging. How severe and problematic it is, of course, is a different question.
