The cervical spine, known as the neck, is the upper part of the body which connects with the thoracic spine. It performs a great number of functions and is extremely delicate. With its complex and intricate construct, and the many stresses and forces that can be placed on it through a trauma or even just daily activities, the cervical spine is at risk for developing a number of painful conditions.
The cervical spine holds and protects the spinal cord, supports the head and allows movement. It also allows blood flow to the brain. The most common conditions that affect this area include: cervical degenerative disc disease, cervical stenosis, cervical fracture, and cervical kyphosis.
