When you look at the bones and components of the neck, there are lots of them, which might have something to do with it.Numerosae sunt partes et ossa (vertebrae C1-7) cervicium seu faucium, quod forsit ad rem pertineat.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
