The cervical spine consists of 7 vertebrae. This part of the column, unlike the lumbo-sacral area, is not subjected to heavy pressure. It is instead subjected to constant stresses, which can be equally traumatic due to the movements of the head.
Neck pain can be caused by fractures, dislocations, degenerative and traumatic injuries. Spine disorders are potentially very dangerous when they involve the cervical nerve roots.
