Caption: Slipped discs. Coloured sagittal (side view) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan through the neck of a patient with two prolapsed (slipped) intervertebral discs (kinks, upper centre). The front of the neck is at left. The spinal cord (pale blue) runs down the vertebral canal (white) inside the blocks of bone (vertebrae, dark blue) of the backbone. The intervertebral discs (white/ blue) are flexible pads of cartilage that lie between and cushion adjacent vertebrae. A slipped disc has ruptured and may place pressure on the spinal cord, causing pain. Most slipped discs heal with rest, though some require surgery. These are at the C3-5 level.
