The cervical vertebrae of the spine consist of seven bony rings that reside in the neck between the base of the skull and the thoracic vertebrae in the trunk. Among the vertebrae of the spinal column, the cervical vertebrae are the thinnest and most delicate bones.

Despite being some of the smallest and lightest bones in the axial skeleton, the cervical vertebrae perform many important functions that are critical to the survival of the body. Vital nerves and blood vessels passing through the neck are protected from mechanical damage by the bony arches of the cervical vertebrae. The cervical vertebrae also provide support to the head and neck, including supporting the muscles that move this region of the body.

There are 5 movements possible in normal range of motion of cervical spine:

  • Extension
  • Flexion
  • Lateral Flexion
  • Rotation
  • Circumduction

The most common cause of a cervical herniated nucleus pulposus is gradual degeneration of the disc, attenuation of the posterior annulus fibrosis, and subsequent protrusion of the nucleus pulposus into the spinal canal causing compression of the nerve root.

All this disease could be involving negatively in daily activities, so it is important to take care of this part of the spine.

The absence of symptoms does not exclude joint problems that may arise in the future.

The Tecnobody devices can evaluate, improve and train the spine in particular could correct postural disease.
