The MRI of 200 low back pain patients referring to radiology imaging center were investigated. 89% of cases had pathologic findings.  Intervertebral disc herniation was more prevalent in housekeeper wives, low level education, and regarding anatomy of the defect, L4-L5 discs (52%),

 Central type of herniation and one level herniation (31%) were more prevalent.
