The content of this article will strike a nerve for some people, so let me preface it by saying this: I was a crossfitter before I was a chiropractor. I am a crossfitter first and I only want to see CrossFit improve. I am not one of those people who just sits around and uselessly criticizes it.

#2: Your second cervical vertebra (C2)
#3: Your third cervical vertebra (C3)
#4: Your fourth cervical vertebra (C4)
#5: Your fifth cervical vertebra (C5)
#6: Your sixth cervical vertebra (C6)
#7: Your seventh cervical vertebra (C7)
…and all the connective tissue, discs, ligaments, and nerves associated with those vertebrae.
