In Plain Language:
The spine or backbone is made up of multiple bones stacked upon each other in a column with cushion-like intervertebral disks between them. These disks are made up of a gel-like center and rigid outer covering. If the outer covering rips from trauma or aging, it is called an annular fissure or annular tear, which can lead to pain and in some cases, a herniated disk.
