Why The License You Choose Matters

Image Description:

 Illustration of a cervical vertebra in superior view. The cervical spine contains 7 vertebrae, named from C1 to C7 descending from the top of the neck to bottom. The cervical spine is more flexible and mobile than the thoracic or lumbar regions of the spine. However they are also comprised of thinner and more delicate bones.

C1 and C2 are commonly known as the atlas and axis. The atlas forms the joint connecting the skull and spine. The lowest cervical vertebra is C7, or vertebra prominens, has a long and prominent spinous process.
