The seriousness of a neck injury can range from very mild whiplash to paralysis from the neck down (quadriplegia). Neck injuries are often combined with serious back injuries and head injuries. It is always a good idea to seek medical attention immediately after a serious accident. Even a dull ache at the base of your neck could be an underlying symptom of something much more serious.

Types of Neck Injuries

Cervical Fracture

A cervical fracture is the breaking of one or more of the bones in the neck area. Because cervical fractures are commonly associated with serious back injuries, including spinal cord injuries, it is essential to see a doctor for a medical examination immediately after an accident if you feel any pain or discomfort in your neck. Symptoms of cervical fractures include pain and tenderness, bruising, swelling, and loss of feeling in the arms or legs. A skilled Florida Attorney in the Neck Injury Claims area will fight for you.

Cervical Disk Herniation

Spinal discs act like cushions in between the vertebrae bones of your spinal column. The cervical discs in the neck are between the sixth and seventh cervical vertebral bodies. A herniated disc is also sometimes referred to as a bulging disc. A herniated cervical disk injury could happen if your head hits the windshield in a car accident. An Experienced Florida Injury Lawyer in this topic will fight and fight and fight for you.

If a disc becomes herniated, the outer band of the disc breaks and a jelly like substance (called the nucleus pulposus) leaks out, causing pressure in the spinal canal and around the nerve roots. A dull ache in the neck, arm pain, along with numbness to in the arms and fingertips, are common symptoms. If the herniation is serious, surgery may be required to remove the part of the bone covering the nerve.

A herniated disc is not usually diagnosed at the scene of an accident or even in an emergency room. Usually, an MRI is required to identify one. MRIs are the preferred test for detecting disc herniation, because they provide better soft tissue visualization than CT scanning.

Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical Radiculopathy, also known as a pinched nerve, is a serious condition that often occurs as a result of a herniated disc, but can be caused by anything putting pressure on the nerve roots in the spinal column. Symptoms can be felt in other areas of the body, anywhere the nerve travels. Your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxers, and painkillers. If the condition does not improve with the use of a cervical brace or steroid injection, you may need surgery. After surgery, physical therapy can prevent further injuries.
