Intervertebral discs

The intervertebral discs are complex fibrocartilaginous structures that link two adjacent vertebrae. They function as cushions and are the main shock absorbents in the spine. The intervertebral discs are found from the axis (C2) to the sacrum. Overall, the spine has 23 intervertebral discs, and they form around one-third of its total length.
