Explanation:
Here's help with at least some of your terms. If I were you, I'd upgrade all your questions on this job to "pro" level, as they are quite specialized and definitely not "easy".

The site referenced below offers a list of terminology for degenerative disk disease:
Disk bulge - circumferential enlargement of the disk contour in a symmetric fashion

Protrusion - a bulging disk that is eccentric to one side but < 3 mm beyond vertebral margin

As to your term "impegno", I'm guessing at "involvement". It sounds like it's a herniated or ruptured disk, ergo the "impegno" bit. More info would be needed to be sure. FYI, I've also listed a link to the glossary of the Pennsylvania Spin Institute.
