Neck Injuries – Personal Injury Lawyer Clarksville
There are several types of Neck and Back Injuries you may be suffering from
Neck and back injuries can encompass many different areas of the body. Your neck and back are important areas of your body, and any pain that arises from them can be excruciating. So what are the different types of neck injuries How do they happen? 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. 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 spinal cord is what the brain uses to communicate with the rest of the body. Any injury to the spine is often severe, and can have extremely detrimental effects to the rest of the body.
- 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 thoracic discs are thinner in the thoracic spine, causing this area of the spine to have limited flexibility. The spinal canal is at its smallest in this area of the back, making the spinal cord more vulnerable to damage if the thoracic spine is injured. 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 – Your lumbar spine is in the lower half of your torso, and is one of the main power areas of the body. The vertebrae in the lumbar spine are connected to the back of the spine by facet joints. These joints allow for flexibility in the lower back. 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.
Injuries to this area can cause issues with your legs, lower bank, and feet. This area of the spine is also most prone to disc herniation and spondylolisthesis. When one of the discs in this area leaks, it places pressure directly on the spine and the nerves there. 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. Any pain that arises from this area typically comes from the connection of the lumbar spine and the sacral region.
- Coccyx – This area is at the bottom of the spine, and houses four fused vertebrae. This part of the spine serves as the shock absorber for your back when you are in a sitting position.
