Caption

Bulging discs in the cervical spine. Labelled artwork and corresponding sagittal MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan through the cervical spine showing varying sizes of bulging discs between the C2 and C7 vertebrae. The larger bulges (C5-C6 and C6-C7) are pressing on the spinal cord (brown) and thecal sac. Bony spurs and loss of disc height are also labelled. 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 bulges can cause pain and may progress to disc herniation.
