Neck Injuries - Personal Injury Lawyer Hayti
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. Your neck and back are important areas of your body, and any pain that arises from them can be excruciating. Are there different types of neck and back injuries, and if so, what are they caused by? 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 consist of bones, nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. 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. When the spine is damaged, the rest of the body can suffer as well.
- Cervical Spine - The cervical spine consists of the cervical vertebrae with cervical discs in between. This area gives your head its range of motion while also supporting your head. The cervical discs hold the vertebrae together and also absorb most of the shock that affects the neck during an accident. 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 - 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 discs here have to be more rigid and sturdy as the amount of weight they support is higher. 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 - 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. This is where your flexibility in this area comes from. This area is also the main hub for nerve endings that continue to the lower portions of the body. 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 - 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. Most of the pain that can arise from this area comes from the spot where the spine and the sacral region connect.
- 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.
