Joints of the Neck

Between the lower 6 cervical vertebrae and craniovertebral joints, the joints of the neck contain intervertebral joints. The joints are typical cervical joints between the lower 6 cervical vertebrae. They all are like those joints in the different parts of the vertebral column. They allow flexion, extension and lateral bending but little rotation. The joints between first and second cervical vertebrae and those between first cervical vertebrae and the skull help in rotation and nodding of head respectively. Due to high prevalence of spondylosis, disc prolapse and fracture dislocation in the cervical region, joints of neck are medically essential.
