    Discs are convex shaped so central measurement will be different depending upon the location of measure. There is also a variation that is congenital. Central measures are from 5-8 mm. Without degeneration, discs higher in the spine are slightly narrower than lower discs.

    Narrowing of the disk height by a small percentage is not an indication for surgery. 6 mm between C2-3 can be a normal finding.
