Cervical Spine Disorders
The cervical spine includes the top seven vertebrae in the neck, protecting the spinal cord as it exits the brain. Since the slim neck balances and moves the head, it can be vulnerable to injury and strain. Cervical spine disorders can vary from trauma to the bones, tissues or nerves in the neck to degenerative diseases and neurological conditions. At DOCS Health in Beverly Hills, CA, we have an incredible team of neurospine surgeons that can accurately diagnose and devise a treatment plan for cervical spine disorders.
The cervical spine has less protection than the thoracic and lumbar spine. It must be more flexible as the neck and head move. While neck pain can be caused by soft tissue injuries to the muscles, tendons or ligaments, it can also be caused by damage to the cervical spine components. Cervical spine disorders can also cause neuropathy that affects the shoulders, arms and hands. Finding the source of cervical spine disorders and pain is vital to determine the best treatment to improve the symptoms.
