The cervical spine (neck region) consists of seven bones (C1-C7 vertebrae), which are separated from one another by intervertebral discs. These discs allow the spine to move freely and act as shock absorbers during weight bearing activity. Ligaments support the joints of the spine. There are also several muscles that attach to this region of the spine.
‘Whiplash’ injuries occur when the neck is rapidly extended and then flexed. Pathology is usually due to a combination of injuries as a result of over-stretching and also compression of the structures in the cervical spine due to rapid acceleration/deceleration forces eg. from a motor vehicle accident.
