Your neck is where the spinal column and spinal cord begin. While the entire spinal column contains dozens of bony segments called vertebrae, the neck is comprised of seven.
These oddly shaped bony structures, or cervical vertebrae, help protect your spinal cord and provide flexibility for your neck.
The muscles, bones, and ligaments in your neck help hold up and support your head, which weighs more than 10 pounds, so damage to any of these structures can lead to debilitating chronic pain.
