What Is a Neck Injury?
The cervical spine comprises the seven vertebrae of the neck. It runs from the base of the skull to the thoracic vertebrae. Spongy structures called spinal discs sit in between each bone, enabling the neck and spine to flex. Neck trauma can affect spinal discs and nerves that control the arms, neck, and upper body.
Whiplash is a common form of neck injury. Often triggered by a rear impact, it is caused by a hyperextension of the head and neck. A whiplash injury is usually not life threatening. Most people, especially those in a minor accident, recovery without permanent issues, but some experience chronic pain for years after an injury.
There are many reasons a person can suffer a neck injury. Motor vehicle accidents account for about 37% of cases in the U.S. The overall costs are staggering; whiplash alone has an economic cost in the U.S. of up to $30 billion a year, which can include medical care, disability, lost productivity, sick leave, and legal action. Then there’s the human toll. Roughly 6,500 people die from neck injuries and 11,500 suffer significant spinal cord damage annually.
