Disc Anatomy and Three Curves of Spine

Disc Anatomy

Discs have a jellylike center(nucleus) and a tough outer ring(annulus). Normally, the nucleus is filled with fluid. Movement pushes fluid in and out of the nucleus. This keeps the disc healthy. Disc size, shape, and flexibility change throughout the day.

Three Curves of the Spine

The spine has three curves: the cervical curve(neck), thoracic curve(midback), and lumbar curve(lowback). When properly aligned, these curves help your body in balance. They also help distribute your weight along your spine.
