The Cervical vertebrae are the vertebrae of the neck, promptly beneath the skull. The Truncal vertebrae lie at the caudal (at the tail) of the cervical vertebrae. In sauropsid species, the cervical vertebrae bear cervical ribs. In reptiles and saurischian dinosaurs, the cervical ribs are enormous, and in birds, they are tiny and intertwined to the vertebrae. The vertebral cross-over cycles of well-evolved creatures are homologous to the cervical ribs of other amniotes. Most warm-blooded animals have seven cervical vertebrae, with the lone three realized exemptions being the manatee (are large, fully aquatic, and herbivorous marine mammals sometimes known as sea cows.) with six, the two-toed sloth with five or six, and the three-toed sloth with nine.

In people, cervical vertebrae are the tiniest of the vertebrae and can be recognized from those of the thoracic or lumbar districts by the presence of a foramen (is the bony hollow archway created by pedicles of adjacent vertebrae) in each cross over the measure, through which the vertebral corridor, vertebral veins, and substandard cervical ganglion pass [1]. The rest of this article centers upon human life systems.

The overall qualities of the 6th cervical vertebrae are elaborated here. The first, second, and seventh vertebrae are important as they play a crucial role in holding up and keeping safe the structure of the head. It happens overwhelmingly through flexion and augmentation at the atlanto-occipital joint between the map book and the occipital bone [2]. The cervical spine is similarly versatile, and some part of this development is the reason for flexion and expansion of the vertebral segment itself. This development of occipital bone is regularly alluded to as the "yes joint" attributable to its tendency for supporting the head to move properly in every direction. A limited quantity of turn of the vertebral section itself adds to the development. The progressions are seen on radiographs, which are utilized in an evaluating framework from 0–4 going from no changes (0) to right on time with insignificant advancement of osteophytes (1) to gentle with unique osteophytes (2) to direct with extra circle space stenosis or narrowing (3) to the phase of numerous huge osteophytes, serious narrowing of the circle space, and more extreme vertebral endplate sclerosis (4). Wounds to the cervical spine are normal at the level of the second cervical vertebrae [3].

The neurological injuries are very harmful, and that is the region that sees the most noteworthy measure of cervical spine injury. It might cause passing or significant incapacity, including loss of motion of the arms, legs, and stomach, which prompts respiratory disappointment. A typical practice is to immobilize a patient's cervical spine [4], to forestall further harm during transport to the medical clinic. This training has gone under audit as of late as occurrence paces of unsound spinal injury can be just about as low as 2% in immobilized patients. The Canadian investigations have fostered the Canadian C-Spine Rule (CCR) for doctors to conclude who got radiological Imaging.
