Cervical injuries result from direct trauma or due to a rapid acceleration/deceleration of the neck. The cervical spinal cord houses 7 delicate vertebrae that enable a person to carry out the full range of neck motions including flexion, extension and rotation. Cervical spine injuries are also referred to as “whiplash.”
Many neck injuries occur when the head is forced forward or backward suddenly in a car or truck accident, or from trauma causing injury to the vertebrae and/or cervical bones. While many orthopedic injuries resulting from accidents are initially thought to minor, often, the full extent of the injury and disability may not be determined for some time. From surgical intervention to long-term rehabilitation, an orthopedic injury can seriously disrupt a victim’s life.
