Medical - Insurance / Medical Assessment
French term or phrase: fermetures cervicales
Medical assessment of an employee making an insurance claim for tendinitis. Under "Observations" the following heading and explanation appear:

"Fermetures cervicales: diminution de la fermeture haute droite et douleur cervicale base droite."

I know the term "cervical closure" exists but don't think it fits here.

Explanation:
In Googling "cervical rib", I discovered 'thoracic outlet', and the link below describes the idea of pinched nerves in this condition. Perhaps this will lead you to find some equivalent 'cervical outlet':

... the cervical outlet (for nerve roots C.5, C.6 [Ed: C5, 6 etc. refer to Cervical...], and normally C.7). ... and middle scalene muscles should be recognized as cervical outlet syndrome, ...
