Caption

Slipped disc in the cervical spine. Labelled artwork of a sagittal section through the cervical spine showing a slipped disc (herniated intervertebral disc). The cervical spine is the part of the backbone found in the neck. The front of the spine is at left. Between each vertebra are discs of fibrocartilage forming joints that allow the spine to bend and flex. The slipped disc is between the C5 and C6 vertebrae. At bottom is the first thoracic vertebra (T1). The herniated part of the disc (centre) is protruding outwards from its normal position, pressing on the spinal cord (yellow). Spinal disc herniation can cause pain and in severe cases may require surgery.
