Neck Injuries – Personal Injury Lawyer Bowling Green
There are several types of Neck and Back Injuries you may be suffering from
There are a wide range of injuries that can affect the neck and back. Your neck area is one of the most vital areas of your body, and when it’s injured you can be in a constant state of pain. What types of neck injuries are there? How do they affect the body? What are the most common injuries? 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. Of this area, the spine is incredibly important and has several different parts: 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 do most of the work for the neck, and act as shock absorbers to protect the vertebrae. This area of the spine also provides the path for blood flow 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 thoracic discs are thinner in the thoracic spine, causing this area of the spine to have limited flexibility. This part of the spine has the smallest part of the spinal canal, and can be easily damaged. 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 – The lumbar spine consists of five intervertebral segments in the lower back and provides the power and flexibility necessary to lift, twist and bend. The vertebrae in the lumbar spine are connected to the back of the spine by facet joints. This is where your flexibility in this area comes from. This part of the spine is also where the nerves from the lower portion of the body conect. 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.
When the spine is injured in this area, it can affect several different areas of your lower body. 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. Most of the pain that can arise from this area comes from the spot where the spine and the sacral region connect.
- Coccyx – The coccyx or tailbone consists of four fused vertebrae and is located at the base of the spine at the bottom of the sacrum. This area of the spine is the shock absorber.
