Neck Injuries - Personal Injury Lawyer Vienna
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. Any injuries to these parts of the body are often quite painful. How many different types of neck and back injuries are there? Which injuries are more likely to happen from certain types of accidents? 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
Bones, nerves, muscles, ligaments cover the entirety of our necks and backs. 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 the highway that allows our message center (the brain) to communicate and control the rest of the body. Any interference or irritation wreaks havoc on our ability to function normally and can be a significant source of pain.
- Cervical Spine - The cervical spine consists of the cervical vertebrae with cervical discs in between. It supports the head and provides the flexibility you need to turn your neck from side to side and to rock it from front to back. 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 - This part of the spine lets us stand upright, and is also attached to the rib cage which protects all of our organs. The discs here aren't as large as the cervical ones, which only gives us a limited range of movement. 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 - This area of the spine allows you to lift heavy things, twist, and be mobile. 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 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. 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 - 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 - 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.
