Caption: Slipped discs in the cervical spine. Labelled artwork and corresponding sagittal MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan through the cervical spine showing slipped discs (herniated intervertebral discs) and disc bulges. Large disc extrusions (C6-C7 and C5-C6 joints) and disc bulges (C4-C5 and C3-C4 joints) are pressing on the spinal cord (yellow). The cervical spine is the part of the backbone found in the neck. The front of the spine is at left. The discs of fibrocartilage between each vertebra form joints that allow the spine to bend and flex. Spinal disc herniation can cause pain and in severe cases may require surgery.
