Pathologies for C1-C7 (Cervical Spine)

Cervical Pain

Cervical pain is a specific back pain that occurs along the 7 vertebrae in the upper section of the spinal column, also known as the cervical spine. It can affect the upper back, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, and even the head.

Certain spinal conditions are associated with this region. Some of them include:

Neck pain occurs in the upper region of the spine, also known as the cervical spine, at the level of vertebrae C1-C7. The pain can occur either locally in the neck, or it can extend down the back, between shoulder blades, or even upward, sometimes leading to headaches.

How to Get Rid of Neck Pain Naturally

Most often, shoulder and neck pain occur together due to their proximity to one another. An issue causing pain in the neck can spread to other parts of the (upper) body, including the shoulders, or even arms or head.

Why Pain in the Neck and Shoulder Radiates Down the Arm

A specific type of headache can result due to back issues associated with the cervical spine. It is called a cervicogenic headache.

Can Neck Pain Cause Headaches?

Poor posture practices such as maintaining a forward head posture, where your neck is overextended in the forward direction, can lead to straining of the neck, leading to tension and stiffness that may extend beyond the cervical region of the spine.

7 Signs of Poor Posture

Disc herniation, bulge, or degeneration can all affect the cervical spine, and lead to nerve pinching, causing pain as a result.

Bulging Disc in the Neck

What Is Degenerative Disc Disease?

Nerves in the neck can become pinched and produce pain due to factors such as discs, bone spurs, or a slipped vertebra rubbing against them.

Trapped Nerve in the Neck

Cervical Radiculopathy

Muscle spasms, strains, and sprains are all issues that can cause pain and discomfort in the cervical spine, but thankfully, the Spinal Backrack is able to relieve pain caused by any of them.

Muscle spasm in the shoulder

Sharp neck pain could be a strain or a sprain

Spinal stenosis in the neck can result due to bone spurs or spinal discs that protrude into the spinal canal, making the passage narrower, and potentially rubbing against nerve roots or even the spinal cord, which then results in pain.
