An annular tear in the spine occurs when a rip or tear of the annulus fibrosus results in the release of the nucleus pulposus towards the disc periphery. When the annular tear occurs in, or reaches, other portions of the annulus, significant and severe pain is a near certainty. If the tear increases and becomes long enough to break through the posterior longitudinal ligament, a disc herniation will likely develop. This can result in symptoms including severe back pain, numbness/weakness in ones extremities, and radiculopathy.
