The cervical spine consists of a series of seven vertebral bones attaching from the base of the skull to the thoracic spine. Many structures pass through the bones of our neck such as nerves arteries and blood vessels. When trauma or repetitive activities occur this can predispose us to different types of injuries. The cervical spine is also home to many nerves, ligaments and muscles that help provide stability to our spine.
Some symptoms associated with cervical spine injuries include:
- Pain and tenderness throughout the muscles of the head and neck
- Muscle tension and stiffness
- Numbness and tingling into the neck, shoulder and upper extremity
- Muscular weakness into the arms and hands

This is an injury that occurs to the muscles and ligaments (soft tissue structures) in the cervical spine when the neck is quickly forced into forward movement (flexion) and then quickly forced backward (extension). This usually occurs in automobile accidents and athletic injuries that involve a force or blow from behind forcing the cervical spine into these rapid and violent motions.
