Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease with Left Disc Injuries – No Text

This exhibit depicts the sagittal and superior anatomy of the cervical spine with three examples of intensifying degenerative disc conditions. Degenerative disc disease is the process of intervertebral disc degradation as a result of age or injury. Over time, the disc dehydrates causing the annulus to crack or tear. This is known as disc desiccation. The nucleus can then bulge or herniate completely through portions of the damaged annulus, encroaching upon the spine’s neurological structures. This can lead to chronic pain and numbness.
