Pain most likely isn't a reliable measure and you can't find correlations with unreliable measures. It could be that there is no correlation, but it could also mean that our current measures of pain (subjective reports) do not allow us to find the correlation.
It is because the pain probably doesn't originate at the disk, it can be anywhere along the long pain pathways in the back.
