Extension is also checked by the tectorial membrane and by bony contact between the opisthion and the arch of C1. Lateral bending and rotation are controlled by the alar ligaments, which span obliquely from the posterolateral surface of the dens, attach partly to C2, and then attach to the medial occipital condyles. Sectioning of the tectorial membrane alone results in increased range of flexion and extension as well as vertical translation beyond the normal range between the dens and cranium. Removal of the alar ligaments results in increased contralateral bending and rotation.
