Neck Injuries – Personal Injury Lawyer Bloomsdale
There are several types of Neck and Back Injuries you may be suffering from
There are multiple types of neck and back injuries, and all are quite serious. Any injuries to these parts of the body are often quite painful. So what are the different types of neck injuries How do they happen? Which injuries are more likely to happen from certain types of accidents? Listed below are the different areas of the neck and the descriptions of the types of pain and discomfort that arise from those areas.
Anatomy of the Neck and Back
Our necks and backs are the main support structures of the body, and have several different layers of bones, nerves, muscles, ligaments. All of these attach to the spine at some point, and come from these different areas of the spine: the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, sacrum (or sacral region) and the coccyx (or tailbone). The spine is also the main message highway in the body, and takes all of the nerve input from across the body. Any interference or irritation wreaks havoc on our ability to function normally and can be a significant source of pain.
- Cervical Spine – The cervical spine consists of the cervical vertebrae with cervical discs in between. This area of the spine allows you to move your head around. The cervical discs, composed of collagen and ligaments, carry the bulk of the workload by acting as shock absorbers between the cervical vertebrae, holding the vertebrae together and allowing for the movement of the neck. This part of the spine is also the main blood flow area to the brain. When you hear about C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, and C7, you are hearing about the area known as the cervical spine.
Trauma to the cervical spine and nerves can result in pain, numbness, tingling or the functional loss of the diaphragm, shoulders, biceps, arms, wrists, hands and fingers.
- Thoracic Spine – This part of the spine lets us stand upright, and is also attached to the rib cage which protects all of our organs. The discs here aren’t as large as the cervical ones, which only gives us a limited range of movement. This area of the spine is more vulnerable to damage as the spinal canal is smallest here. The vertebrae T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9, T10, T11, and T12 are positioned in this area of the spine.
Trauma to the thoracic spine can cause upper back pain and nerve injuries that affect the shoulders. Other muscles compensate for injuries to this area of the spine, causing pain to resonate throughout the upper body.
- Lumbar Spine – This area of the spine allows you to lift heavy things, twist, and be mobile. The vertebrae in the lumbar spine are connected to the back of the spine by facet joints. This parts gives you flexibility. Nerve roots branch out and continue down all the way to the feet after the spinal column ends between the thoracic and lumbar spine. This area of the spine is one of the more common areas injured. The vertebrae L1, L2, L3, L4, and L5 are located in this area of the spine.
Trauma to the lumbar spine can cause pain, tingling and loss of range of motion in the lower back, legs, ankles, feet, and toes. This area of the spine is also most prone to disc herniation and spondylolisthesis. A herniated disc occurs when the gel-like inner core of the intervertebral disc leaks out and puts direct pressure on the nerves that run through the spine, also referred to as nerve impingement. Spondylolisthesis occurs when a vertebra slips over the one below it causing compression on the nerve root.
- Sacrum – There are five segments of fused bone here, and is found between the lumbar and the tailbone. This region supports the back of the pelvis and forms the sacroiliac joints at the hip bone. The sacral nerves and blood vessels run through this area of the spine. Since it is fairly stable, most pain that arises from trauma to this region occurs where the lumbar spine connects to the sacral region.
- Coccyx – This area is at the bottom of the spine, and houses four fused vertebrae. This area of the spine is the shock absorber.
