This image shows a side view of the seven bones in the neck (or cervical spine).
In between the bones are the little cushions that separate the bones, called disks.
The facet joints also have a layer of cartilage, which helps the bones to glide on one another.
Unlike the rest of the spine, the vertebral artery passes through these bones to supply the brain with blood.
Misalignments in this area can affect all the nerves below as well as the blood supply to the brain.
