Understanding Neck Pain

Anatomy and Vulnerabilities of the Cervical Spine

The neck, also referred to as the cervical spine, serves as the crucial link between the base of the skull and the rest of the spine, consisting of seven small vertebrae. Supporting the weight of the head, which averages about 12 pounds, the cervical spine facilitates a wide range of motion, allowing the head to move in nearly every direction. However, this remarkable flexibility also renders the neck highly susceptible to pain and injury.

Factors Contributing to Discomfort and Disruption

Understanding the underlying causes of this discomfort is essential for effective treatment and management, enabling healthcare providers to tailor interventions to specific issues and alleviate discomfort.
