Anatomy and Motion of the Cervical Spine

///Anatomy and Motion of the Cervical Spine

This video–Anatomy and Motion of the Cervical Spine–will give the individual a good idea of how the neck or the cervical spine is constructed (the anatomy). It goes over the structures of the neck such as the disc, the facets (the paired joints in the back of the neck), the foramen (the hole the nerve root exits out), the spinal canal and the nerves themselves. Function of the neck is discussed and how neck motion causes changes in the size of the spinal canal and foramen the nerves and spinal cord live in. The video discusses how a herniated disc or bone spur will cause nerve or spinal cord compression with neck motion.
