    Love this! I’m a student in medical school on an accelerated program, so we cram our anatomy into 2 semesters. This has been very helpful for me!

    You should add arterial supply and nerve stuff! Still very helpful though!

    Thank you SO much for developing this site. I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Hypermobility Type. There are so few doctors who understand this syndrome so people who have it need to become their own “doctors” in order to communication with medical professionals about their needs. I stumbled across your site when looking for info on neck anatomy as I’m considering cervical fusion. I’m on several EDS online support groups and I’m sharing your site with them so the members can educated themselves as well. I truly appreciate your taking the time to put all of this together.

      no problem, it is always really nice to hear that the videos are useful and are helpful for people – gives me motivation to create more and improve on the quality of my videos. Thank you for watching the videos and for spreading the word. One of the things I hoped for when making the videos is that they would be useful for people who aren’t necessarily revising for exams or studying, but who are interested in learning more about the body, whether they are patients who want to educate themselves about their own particular condition or injury, or whether they just wanted to learn for fun.

      Thanks again for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

    **communicate** **educate** so sorry for the errors. My hands don’t work that well these days!

    I had really bad arthritic related pain in my cervical C4-C7 joints about 7 years ago. It’s related to playing too much hockey and being very active (I’m 54). Dr. said I have slight thinning of the discs which causes reduced lordotic curve (basically getting old, duh!). So my PT had me do exercises on the longus colli and longus capitus (inner muscles that stabilize the cervical vertibra) without firing the big neck muscles in the front. In a few months the pain went away and with ongoing maintence exercises, anti-inflammatories and home traction, I’ve been playing hockey and cycling for past 5 years. Don’t neglect those neck muscles!!
