Displacement Of Cervical Intervertebral Disc Without Myelopathy

Spinal discs are located between the vertebrae (blocks of bone) of the spine (expect the upper 2). They act like shock absorbers and are also important in allowing our spines to be flexible.

They can ...Read more

Nonsensical: The spinal cord ends at about l-2, and most common disc issues are present at l4-5, and l-5-s-1. In order for a disc to affect the spinal cord, we are talking about a problem in the lower thoracic spine, or a rather unusual high lumbar disc fragment, perhaps.
