Neck and Cervical Spine Anatomy
The vertebral bodies encase the spinal cord to provide protection. When stacked on top of each other, they form the spinal column which provides stability for the head and upper body. The spinal cord and the nerve exits are located within the spinal canal.
The intervertebral discs are located between the vertebral bodies. These discs cushion shock forces, acting as “shock absorbers”. The discs in conjunction with the vertebral joints facilitate motion by turning, stretching, and bending the neck.

What is degenerative Disc Disease?
Normally, the disc sandwiched between each vertebra provides the cushioning space that keeps the bones separated. Degenerative Disc Disease, or DDD, is a condition that can occur when the discs in your spine no longer function normally because of aging, wear, or from being injured. This can cause pain that limits your ability to perform daily activities. This condition can often be treated non-surgically with medications, physical therapy, spinal injections, chiropractic care, braces, exercise programs, or rest.
