The 5th cervical vertebra (C5) is one of the seven cervical vertebrae located in the neck region of the spinal column. Here are some key details about the C5 vertebra:

  • Location: The C5 vertebra is situated in the cervical spine, which consists of the top seven vertebrae (C1 to C7) in the spinal column. It is the fifth vertebra from the top, positioned between the C4 and C6 vertebrae.


  • Vertebral Body: Like other cervical vertebrae, C5 has a small, oval-shaped vertebral body that supports the weight of the head.
  • Vertebral Arch: The vertebral arch consists of a pair of pedicles and laminae that encircle and protect the spinal cord.
  • Spinous Process: C5 has a bifid (split) spinous process, which provides attachment points for muscles and ligaments.
  • Transverse Processes: These extend laterally from the vertebral arch and contain foramina (holes) through which the vertebral arteries pass, supplying blood to the brain.
  • Articular Processes: The superior and inferior articular processes form joints with adjacent vertebrae, allowing for flexibility and movement in the neck.


  • Support: C5, along with the other cervical vertebrae, supports the head and neck.
  • Protection: It protects the spinal cord, which runs through the vertebral foramen (the central opening in the vertebra).
  • Movement: It facilitates a range of neck movements, including flexion, extension, rotation, and lateral bending.

Clinical Significance:

  • Injuries: The C5 vertebra can be subject to fractures, dislocations, or other injuries due to trauma, such as from car accidents or falls. Injuries at this level can impact the spinal cord, potentially leading to neurological deficits or paralysis.
  • Degenerative Conditions: Conditions such as cervical spondylosis (degenerative arthritis) or herniated discs can affect the C5 vertebra, leading to pain, stiffness, and neurological symptoms like numbness or weakness in the arms.

Understanding the anatomy and function of the C5 vertebra is important for diagnosing and treating various conditions related to the cervical spine.
