Types of Neck Injuries

Possible neck injuries due to an accident can vary from muscle, ligament and nerve damage (whiplash) all the way to paralysis or sensory loss. A herniated disc occurs when a portion of the spinal discs bulges out as well as fractured vertebrae which is caused by one or more broken bones in the cervical region. Pinched nerves occur when pressure is placed on a nerve causing irritation and pain throughout associated areas. Knowing these common types of neck injury may help prevent further damages should any form arise after an incident takes place. There are a number of types of neck injuries that can occur as a result of an accident. Some of the most common include:

  • Whiplash: Whiplash is one of the most common neck injuries and occurs when the head is abruptly jolted forward and then backward. This can cause damage to the neck muscles, ligaments, and nerves.
  • Spinal Cord Injury: This type of injury occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord, which can result in paralysis or loss of sensation.
  • Herniated Disc: A herniated disc occurs when a portion of the spinal disc bulges out of place and puts pressure on the spinal nerve roots.
  • Fractured Vertebra: This type of injury occurs when one or more vertebrae in the neck are broken.
  • Pinched Nerve: This type of injury occurs when a nerve in the neck is compressed, leading to pain and numbness.


Causes of Neck Injuries

Neck injuries are a common occurrence and can be caused by various scenarios. From car accidents to simple slips, the neck is vulnerable to harm in everyday situations.  Neck injuries can stem from:

  • Car accidents: Car accidents are one of the leading causes of neck injuries. When a person is involved in a car accident, their head can be violently jerked forward or backward, which can result in serious injury.
  • Slip and fall accidents: Slip and fall accidents can also cause neck injuries. When a person slips or falls, they may hit their head or neck, which can result in injury.
  • Sports injuries: Many sports, such as football, basketball, and wrestling, can result in neck injuries. These injuries are often caused by violent impacts, such as tackles or collisions.
  • Repetitive motions: Repetitive motions, such as typing or using a mouse, can also lead to neck injuries. Over time, these motions can cause strain and discomfort in the neck.

Effects of Neck Injuries

Neck injuries can have a wide range of effects, including pain, limited mobility, numbness and tingling in the arms and hands, paralysis, stiffness and headaches. Common effects of neck injuries are:

  • Pain: Neck injuries can result in chronic pain that can last for months or even years.
  • Limited Mobility: In some cases, a neck injury can limit a person’s ability to move their head and neck, which can make daily activities difficult.
  • Numbness and Tingling: A neck injury can result in numbness and tingling in the arms, hands, and fingers, which can impact a person’s ability to perform fine motor skills.
  • Paralysis: In severe cases, a neck injury can result in paralysis, which can be permanent.
  • Stiffness: Neck stiffness is another common symptom of neck injuries. This stiffness can make it difficult to move the neck, and can cause discomfort.
  • Headaches: Headaches are also a common symptom of neck injuries and can vary from mild to debilitating.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Neck Injuries

If you have suffered a neck injury due to an accident or someone else’s fault, you may find your primary medical provider may not want to treat you. You need to be in treatment as quickly as possible and that is something that we can help with. Once you are seen by a doctor you will undergo a physical exam, and other tests to determine your injury and diagnosis.

Once your neck injury has been diagnosed, your doctor will work with you to develop a treatment plan. This plan may include pain management techniques, such as physical therapy or chiropractic care, as well as medications to manage pain and inflammation. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to treat serious neck injuries.
