Cervical Spine: Getting the Whole Story


Function of the cervical spine is driven both from the top down and from the bottom up. The demands on the cervical spine depend entirely on the functional task being performed. To complete the task, does the individual need to look in a particular direction by turning the head while the body stays still? Does the person need to keep their gaze fixed while the body moves below? Or, most likely, is there some combination of head movement with simultaneous body movement below needed for the task?
