Our Michigan personal injury lawyers often represent clients who have suffered cervical spine injuries in Michigan car accidents, slip and fall accidents, work-related accidents, and all other personal injury accident matters. These injuries often require extensive medical treatment and cause disability from work and recreational activities. It is important that the personal injury attorney be knowledgeable on the various types of neck injuries and their treatments.
Cervical Spine Injuries
The neck is part of a long column of bones, known as the spinal column or backbone. This column is divided up in the lumbar spine (lower back), thoracic spine (upper back), and cervical spine (neck region). The cervical spine consists of seven bones, labeled C1 - C7 vertebrae. Each vertebrae is separated from the next one by intervertebral discs, which allow the spine to move freely and absorb shock. Degeneration of disc space or a herniated disc are potentially severe injuries that can follow a car accident or other personal injury.
Symptoms of A Cervical Spine Injury
Symptoms of a cervical spine injury usually includes neck pain, due to problems with a disc or facet joint, pain in the shoulder, and/or pain in the shoulder blades. Pain, tingling, or numbness can also occur in specific sites in your upper limp, depending on which nerve is affected.
Treatment For A Cervical Spine Injury
There are three different ways a cervical spine can be treated. They include nonoperative treatment, halo vest immobilization, and surgical treatment. The goal of the treatment for cervical spine injuries are to realign the spine, prevent loss of function of undamaged neurological tissue, improve neurological recover, obtain and maintain spinal stability, and obtain early functional recovery.
