It will be slowly squashed by any sustained weight. Sustained pressure will buckle the collagen lamellae and water will be squeezed out of the anulus. Both processes will lessen the height of the anulus. The binding of the collagen by proteoglycan gel will not be enough to prevent this prolonged deformation. Some form of additional bracing mechanism is required. This is provided by the nucleus pulposus. As a ball of fluid, the nucleus pulposus may be deformed but its volume cannot be compressed.
