The cervical spine, known as the neck, is the upper part of the body that connects with the thoracic spine. It is exceptionally delicate and it is responsible for multiple functions. The cervical spine is at risk for developing a great number of painful conditions due to its intricate and composite construct, as well as the forces and stresses placed on it by daily tasks or through a trauma.
The functions of the cervical spine are the following: holding and protecting the spinal cord, supporting the head, allowing blood flow to the brain and facilitating movement. The most common conditions that affect this area include: cervical degenerative disc disease, cervical stenosis, cervical fracture, and cervical kyphosis.
