Cervical Spine

Term Category: Anatomy

The cervical spine, also known as the neck region of the spine, consists of seven vertebral bones labeled as C1 to C7. It is a crucial part of the spine that supports the head and allows for a wide range of movement in various directions, including flexion, extension, lateral bending, and rotation. The cervical spine also protects the delicate spinal cord that runs through its central canal. It plays a vital role in maintaining posture, balance, and overall flexibility of the upper body.
