Asker: I used the onset of disc narrowing in the end - though impingement would be more technical

neutral  Yasser El Helw: I agree with "early" but no "nerve compression" in source.

agree  Yasser El Helw: Impingement is the correct word. What is squeezed here is the disc itself. Though probable, we do not know that there is any nerve involvement.

neutral  Yasser El Helw: What "pinzamiento" means (I think) is loss of height (squeezing) of the disc. Slipping, prolapse or herniation are different situations (I think)! "Narrowing" is fine :-)
