The cervical spine supports the weight of the head and enables head and neck movement. While the cervical spine is only exposed to small weight-bearing loads, it is subject to a number of extrinsic forces such as repetitive movements, whole-body vibrations and static load. As cervical pain and dysfunction are common presenting conditions in clinical practice, clinicians must have a detailed understanding of the anatomy of this region to ensure appropriate assessment and treatment. This course, therefore, provides an in-depth discussion of the cervical spine, including the bony structures, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves and vascular supply.
This course aims to explore the functional anatomy of the cervical spine.
