Caption: Slipped disc. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan showing a sagittal view through the head, neck and upper back of a patient with a herniated intervertebral disc (slipped disc, centre). This injury causes pain, but normally clears up with rest. This sagittal view passes vertically through the body (seen from the side). The front of the body is at left. Parts of the brain are at top, including the cerebellum and brainstem. The spinal cord descends from the brain through the backbone. The backbone consists of a series of small blocks of bones (vertebrae) that are separated by thinner intervertebral discs. At centre, one of these discs has ruptured, putting pressure on the spinal cord.
