Longus colli muscle
Additional recommended knowledge
It is broad in the middle, narrow and pointed at either end, and consists of three portions, a superior oblique, an inferior oblique, and a vertical.
It is commonly injured in rear end whiplash injuries, usually resulting from a car crash.
This muscle is in front of the spine and is thought by some scientists that it may cause some whiplash patients to have an unnatural lack of curvature in the patients' neck.
