​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Back Pain


Cervical discs are an important part of our anatomy. Nestled between the vertebrae in the neck, they form part of the cervical spine – the section of the spine that runs from the base of our skull, through our neck to our shoulders where is becomes known as the thoracic spine. The cervical spine comprises of seven vertebrae – aptly named C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6 and C7, each with a single cervical disc between them. If these discs become damaged or affected by wear and tear, they may require replacing so that the patient is not adversely affected.
