I have Q to if its in most major cases the disc collapse on the front connect to ligament flavum to compress on spinal cord (with out compress on the front)(u see connection between this things ?(IN stage specific of the c s (in c2-3 it is not happen because the anatomical structure of the c spine (but in lower from c3-4 to below its effected
so from c3 to c7 (if disc collapse its affected to ligament to compress on spine (in the start close to csf so black. (I try to guess it by the pictures I see and the condition of the disc You are an expert in knowing this situation)
what is disc collapse what is different from degenerative disc disease ?

Discal collapse can cause central stenosis due to the ligamentum flavum “bunching” as the ligament does become more redundant with disc height loss. Generally, you would already have to have preexisting congenital canal stenosis for this to happen.

Disc collapse and dosc degeneration is the same thing in the language of expert?(spine surgeon know what disc is not going to hold time ?
I share with u good images of T 2 image section of axial and sagittal
Its from 2016 but u can see the ligmanet flavum in level 3-4 disc very compress on the csf
And in c5-7 dont see that
U can also see the size of the disc and the color (the image is very good )
U can also see the degeneration in c2-4
Also disc c4-5 its thin (the a collision with wall of the pool in backstroke get big impact(what can get in accident like this off course) directly on cervical spine.
