Neck Injuries – Personal Injury Lawyer Nokornis

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 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 the main pathway that nerve endings use to get messages to the brain. Any interference or irritation wreaks havoc on our ability to function normally and can be a significant source of pain.

  • Cervical Spine – This portion of the spine consists of the cervical discs and the cervical vertebrae. 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. 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 thoracic discs are thinner in the thoracic spine, causing this area of the spine to have limited flexibility. 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 – . 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.

    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 – This part of the spine has five fused bones. 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 bottom portion of the spine has four fused parts. The tailbone is the shock absorber for when you’re sitting.
