invertebral disc, disc function

Last month, in Anatomy 101, we looked at muscles, tendons, and ligaments. 

This month, in Anatomy 102, we look at the intervertebral disc. The intervertebral disc is a crucial component of the spine, playing a significant role in its overall function. It acts as a shock absorber and provides space between the vertebrae for nerves to pass through, allowing for smooth movement and flexibility in the spine.  

In the short 3-minute video, you will discover fascinating facts about these discs. For instance, you will learn how they function and adapt to different movements, enabling us to twist, bend, and turn our bodies. Understanding the mechanics of these discs is essential to maintaining a healthy spine.
