Cervical spine

The cervical spine is also described as the 5th organ and is a highly complex organ of movement that can move freely in all directions. Especially at the transition of the cervical spine to the thoracic spine, where the mobility is less, there are often early signs of wear (osteochondrosis and spondylosis) but also herniated discs (disc herniation) and in case of radiating pain in an arm or shoulder, the performance of a magnetic resonance imaging of the cervical spine is worth considering.
