Neck Injuries – Personal Injury Lawyer Dixon
There are several types of Neck and Back Injuries you may be suffering from
Neck and back injuries are always serious. Your neck and back are important areas of your body, and any pain that arises from them can be excruciating. How many different types of neck and back injuries are there? What injuries do we see most often? 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 extremely complex, and have many parts and areas comprising 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 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 – This area is where the cervical vertebrae and the cervical discs are located. This area of the spine allows you to move your head around. The cervical discs hold the vertebrae together and also absorb most of the shock that affects the neck during an accident. The main supply of blood and oxygen from the body to the brain also goes through here. 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 – The thoracic spine consists of twelve vertebrae that hold the body upright and, combined with our rib cages, protects the vital organs located in the chest. 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. These joints allow for flexibility in the lower back. This area is also the main hub for nerve endings that continue to the lower portions of the body. This is one of the most vulnerable areas of the spine. 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. 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 – The sacrum consists of five segments of fused bone and is located between the lumbar spine 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.
