Cervicalgia (neck pain)

Cervicalgia is the name given to pain that appears in the area of the cervical spine, the posterior part of the neck. Sometimes, this pain can radiate to the head and arms, or also towards the dorsal (middle back) area. The cervical spine has a dual role: it needs to be stable enough to support the weight of the head, but also flexible enough to allow for a wide range of movement and to function properly. In addition, the cervical spine contains the spinal cord, from which the nerves that control the upper extremities branch out.
