Common Neck Pain Conditions
FUNCTIONAL NECK CONDITIONS
Functional neck conditions refer to a variety of disorders or issues affecting the neck and its associated structures. They often result in symptoms such as neck pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, and sometimes, radiating pain into the shoulders or arms.
Skeletal Anatomy of Neck
The neck, also called the cervical spine, is a well-engineered structure of bones, nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The cervical spine is delicate—housing the spinal cord that sends messages from the brain to control all aspects of the body—while also remarkably strong and flexible, allowing the neck to move in all directions.
The bones of the neck include the seven cervical vertebrae, the hyoid bone, the clavicles and the manubrium of the sternum.
The seven cervical vertebrae are located between the skull base and the thoracic vertebrae. The cervical vertebrae enclose the spinal cord in the neck as well as the meninges (coverings) surrounding the spinal cord.
Vertebrae C1, C2 and C7 are classified as atypical vertebrae, as they have special features which are not common to the typical vertebrae (C3-C6). The different parts of the vertebrae have different functions.
The thicker, stronger, anterior bodies of the vertebrae are important for weight bearing, and thereby are important in supporting the weight of the head. The facets of the vertebrae help to join adjacent vertebrae, and the movement at these joints allows the neck to be flexible.
Muscle Anatomy of Neck
The muscles of the neck are muscles that cover the area of the neck. These muscles are mainly responsible for the movement of the head in all directions. They consist of 3 main groups of muscles: anterior, lateral and posterior groups, based on their position in the neck. The musculature of the neck is further divided into more specific groups based on a number of determinants; including depth, precise location and function.
The position of a muscle or group of muscles in the neck generally relates to the function of the muscles. For example, the muscles in the posterior neck are responsible for extension of the neck. The muscles of the neck are closely related to a number of important structures that pass between the thorax and the head, including major blood vessels, nerves and elements of the respiratory and gastrointestinal systems.
