Short Description of Neck Trauma
Few situations warrant a greater challenge as neck trauma. This is because of the multitude of organ systems that are compressed into a compact space. Neck trauma refers to any injury be it blunt or penetrating that affects the neck region.
Symptoms of Neck Trauma
Symptoms depend on the type and severity of the injury and include:
- Difficulty turning the neck
- Muscle spasms in the neck and shoulders
- Neck Stiffness
- Weakness in the legs, arms, hands and fingers
About Neck Trauma
Many people to not give a lot of attention to the neck until it becomes tight, sore or there is difficulty when turning. If this occurs it is only then that we realize all the muscles, tendons and bones let us move about freely. If you experience sudden trauma to the neck, such as a minor muscle strain, or a serious cervical fracture, pain and limited mobility require immediate attention to address the injuries.
Etiology of Neck Trauma
The neck is an integral part of the spine that serve to connect the head to the rest of your body. Necks come in different sizes, some are big and wide while others are long and thin. Regardless of its shape, the neck has a very important job. It needs to be flexible enough in order to move, but also strong enough so as to be able to provide stability to the head. Try picking up a 10-pound bowling ball to get an idea of how heavy a load your neck has to carry. There are 7 spinal bones or vertebrae that make up the neck and this is what gives it stability. In between each vertebrae are disks that function like cushions and serve as shock absorbers. There are also numerous muscles that support the neck and give it the flexibility it needs.
Playing a lot of sports on a regular basis can place a lot of stress and wear on the ligaments and muscles of the neck. Direct head and shoulder trauma can lead to head injuries including disc and nerve damage, sprains, strains and other neck trauma injuries. In football for instance, the neck takes a lot of damage each time there is a fall or tackle. A high-speed collision that throws the head forward or backward can place a lot force on it, similar to a whiplash injury during a vehicular accident. If the neck is flung forward beyond its limits, it is called hyperflexion. The sudden movements can result to tears in the ligaments, a thick rubber like band of tissues that connect the vertebrae. The experience results to a sprain or strain.
If the force of a fall or hit pushes the head to one side, this neck trauma injury is known as a stinger or burner. It is so named due to the shock-like sensation it sends racing from your shoulder down to your arm. This kind of neck trauma is quite common and up to 70% of college football players experience having this kind of injury.
For patients who suffer minor neck trauma resulting in some pain, it should eventually go away on its own without further treatment. A serious neck injury, simply is more than just a pain in the area of the neck as there can be spinal cord damage and possible paralysis that could be permanent.
You may have serious neck trauma if:
- Presence of neck pain that does not go away
- Shooting pain the legs or arms
- Presence of numbness, tingling and weakness in the arms and legs
- Difficulty in controlling the bladder or bowels
Neck Trauma Risk Factors
There are several contributing factors that increase the risk of neck trauma seen in patients and these include:
- Engaging in sports such as football
- Repetitive neck movement if you have a job that requires constant neck movement or overhead work
- Genetics – Strong family history of neck pain or arthritis
Types of Neck Trauma
- Neck Sprain or Strain – Sprains can occur if the ligaments in the neck are torn. Strains are neck injuries that feature a torn muscle or tendon. This happens due to a sudden injury during physical activity or in a minor car accident.
- Stiff Muscles and Tendons – This is often called a crick in the neck; the stiffness is caused by moving awkwardly or keeping the neck in the same position for a prolonged period of time such as sleeping overnight.
- Herniated Disc – This neck trauma injury happens when a spinal disc is torn and the soft jelly-like interior leaks or bulges out of the disc. The injury usually happens as a result of wear and tear. Herniated discs also happen due to sudden injury such as a fall.
- Pinched Nerve – A pinched nerve happens when bone, tissue or tendons push against the surrounding nerves, resulting to pain.
- Fractured Cervical Spine – Although rare, a fractured cervical spine is a very serious condition that needs immediate attention.
Prevention of Neck Trauma
While it may not be completely impossible to prevent neck trauma, there are steps you can take that can markedly reduce the risk and protect your spine:
- Exercising regularly
- Maintenance of a healthy weight
- Strengthening of the back and core muscles
- Use of ergonomic pillows, chairs and other materials that can correctly position the spine
- Maintenance of good posture when sitting or standing
- Cautioning movement when lifting, twisting or turning
