Default Running and its impact to the Lumbar Spine Discs

Would love Lyle's opinion or anyone else who may have some education on this.

I tried to google exactly what parts of the body take the majority of impact of running but could not find a site talking specifically about it. I was trying to find a solid answer specifically about how running affects lower back discs. I did find one site that referenced two studies where running temporarily reduced the length of the spine directly after exercise but it was only temporarily.

I know a lot of muscles take impact from running, at least my calves so. So my question is...does running damage or stress the lumbar spine discs assuming good form and cushioned shoes are used? Or do other parts of the body take the brunt of running's impact?
