The neck is an important part of the long flexible column, also known as the backbone or spinal column that extends through most of the body. The neck region or the cervical spine consists of sevens bines (vertebrae C1-C7), and they are separated from each other with intervertebral discs. The discs presence helps the spine move freely and acts as a shock absorber from trauma or injury. The neck anatomy is a very well designed structure of bones, nerve, muscles, tendons, and tendons. The cervical spine covers the spinal cord that sends a message from the brain to other body organs, control locomotion, flexibility, and other body co-ordinating activities. The seven vertebrates of the neck are connected to the thoracic spine (the upper back). The stress or force can cause trauma to the cervical spine. It can lead to the development of various painful conditions such as cervical osteoarthritis, stenosis, herniated disc, and degenerative disc disease.

A variety of factors causes neck pain. Many a time, lifestyle changes, and with the help of conservative treatments, the neck pain will eventually go away.
