I'm very sorry, I misread the word "cervicale". (I wrote my first answer as I was running out to pick up my son.) This answer should be correct!

cervical spine


Explanation:
In the 1999 Current Medical Diagnosis and Treatment, under the heading "Cervicobrachial Pain Syndromes", "cervical spine" is used repetitively. I hope I'm not too late.
Good luck!

multiple injuries to the cervical spine


Explanation:
If you still have doubts, or just need better references to back up the answer, I can offer this final answer to help you out:
According to Zanichelli's Biologia e Medicina, "rachide" is "colonna vertebrale". The translation offered is "rachis". In the anatomy and medical books that I consulted, however, "cervical rachis" was not used even once. (I consulted 3 anatomy textbooks and 2 general medical textbooks.) Dorland's Medical Dictionary (Edition 28) defines "rachis" as "the vertebral column". Three adjectives are also defined by Dorland's; "rachidial" = "pertaining to the spine"; "rachidian" = "pertaining to the spine"; and "rachial" = "rachidial". "Cervical" is defined as "pertaining to the neck, or to the neck of any organ or structure". This said, I consulted anatomy books to see what terms we use most often to describe the cervical rachis/ cervical vertebral column/ cervical spine. Here is an exerpt from Grey's Anatomy, "The spine or vertebral column...The spine is a flexuous, and flexible column formed of a series of bones called vertebrae...The vertebrae are 33 in number, and have recieved the names cervical, dorsal, lumbar, sacral and coccygeal...The cervical vertebrae..." Moore's Clinically Oriented Anatomy refers to "the 7 cervical vertebrae, the cervical spinal nerves," etc. Then, in the 1999 Current Medical Diagnosis and Treatment, under the heading "Cervicobrachial Pain Syndromes", the more general term "cervical spine" (as opposed to referring to specific cervical vertebrae) is used very repetitively; here are just a few examples: "osteoarthritis of the cervical spine"; "decreased cervical spine motion"; "stabilization of the cervical spine"; etc., etc. I never once saw the term "rachis" used, even though, technically, we have this word in English. I hope this clears up any doubts that you may have.
Very best regards,
Andréa
