Nuchal ligament

The nuchal ligament is a ligament at the back of the neck, continuous with the supraspinous ligament. The nuchal ligament extends from the external occipital protuberance on the skull and median nuchal line to the spinous process of the seventh cervical vertebra in the lower part of the neck. From the anterior border of the nuchal ligament, a fibrous lamina is given off; this is attached to the posterior tubercle of the atlas, to the spinous processes of the cervical vertebrae, forms a septum between the muscles on either side of the neck. The trapezius and splenius capitis muscle attach to the nuchal ligament, it is a tendon-like structure that has developed independently in humans and other animals well adapted for running. In some four-legged animals ungulates, the nuchal ligament serves to sustain the weight of the head. In Chiari malformation treatment and duraplasty with a harvested ligamentum nuchae showed similar outcomes to pericranial and artificial grafts. In sheep and cattle it is known as the paddywhack.

It relieves the animal of the weight of its head. Dried paddywhack is packaged and sold as a dog treat. In most other mammals, including the great apes, the nuchal ligament is absent or present only as a thin fascia; as it is required for running, not all animals have one. All dogs possess a similar ligament connecting the spinous process of their first thoracic vertebrae to the back of the axis bone, which supports the weight of the head without active muscle exertion, thus saving energy; this ligament is analogous in function to the nuchal ligament found in ungulates. This ligament allows dogs to carry their heads while running long distances, such as while following scent trails with their nose to the ground, without expending much energy; this article incorporates text in the public domain from page 290 of the 20th edition of Gray's Anatomy Investigation of connective tissue attachments to the cervical spinal dura mater
