Neck Injuries – Personal Injury Lawyer St. Louis

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. 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 are extremely complex, and have many parts and areas comprising of bones, nerves, muscles, ligaments. Our spine spans from the length of our neck to our lower back and is broken down into sections: 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 – This portion of the spine consists of the cervical discs and the cervical vertebrae. This area gives your head its range of motion while also supporting your head. 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 – The Thoracic Spine holds the body upright, and also is attached to the rib cage. The discs here have to be more rigid and sturdy as the amount of weight they support is higher. 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 – 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 part of the spine is also where the nerves from the lower portion of the body conect. 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. This is where pressure is placed directly on the nerves and spine instead of the discs in that area. 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.
