The neck, or cervical spine, is one of three main sections of the spinal column and is made up of multiple vertebrae that extend from the skull to the upper torso. Cervical discs in the neck absorb shock between the bones. The bones, ligaments and muscles in the neck support the head and allow for motion. Neck injuries can occur as a result of falling, excessive twisting of the spine, car accidents, head trauma and sports.
