Cervical Disc Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy A cervical disc is a disk-shaped specialized tissue that separates the vertebral bones of the spinal column in the neck. The center of the disc, called the nucleus, is soft, springy and receives the shock of standing, walking, running, etc. The outer ring of the disc, which is called the annulus (Latin for ring), provides structure and strength to the disc. The annulus consists of a complex series of interwoven layers of fibrous tissue that hold the nucleus in place. There are eight cervical vertebrae and a cervical disc between each adjacent vertebraes.
