What is a vacuum disc?

Anyone been told they have a "vacuum disc?" I've googled it. Anxious to put two and two together and understand if this pathology is of concern for me. It seems like I have a million issues that in of themselves aren't much of a problem. I'm wondering if you put it all together --then what do i have? For example a spondylosis at two levels with "limited motion." Well, Ok its limited, but is that OK? Is that the source of pain? Is the whole greater then the sum of my parts?


  • Don't know what a vacuum disc is, but spondylosis is simply arthritis. Simply, of course, is not intended to minimize the situation. I have severe spondylosis at all cervical levels and it does cause problems.
