Caption

Slipped disc, coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. Profile view of the spine of a 59-year-old patient with severe rheumatoid arthritis and a herniated (slipped) disc (red, upper centre-left). This condition occurs where one of the intervertebral discs (black bands) in the backbone ruptures. These discs are located between and cushion the vertebrae (squares). When a discs ruptures, the fluid and displaced tissue puts pressure on the nerves, causing pain. Here, one of the intervertebral discs in the neck (cervical region) has ruptured.
