Neck Injuries – Personal Injury Lawyer Winchester
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. What types of neck injuries are there? How do they affect the body? 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 spine is the main pathway that nerve endings use to get messages to the brain. When the spine is damaged, the rest of the body can suffer as well.
- 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 do most of the work for the neck, and act as shock absorbers to protect the vertebrae. This area of the spine also provides the path for blood flow 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 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 vertebrae in the lumbar spine are connected to the back of the spine by facet joints. This parts gives you flexibility. This part of the spine is also where the nerves from the lower portion of the body conect. 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. 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 – 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. 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.
