The neck is composed of seven vertebrae in the cervical spine. Neck trauma can affect the spinal discs and nerves that control upper body functioning. Whiplash is a common neck injury that is caused by forceful, hyperextension of the head and neck and can result in chronic pain, muscle spasms, headaches, stiffness, and reduced mobility. Other serious neck damages include sprains, strains, pinched nerves, herniated discs, fractures, facet joint injuries, and spinal cord injuries. The most serious of neck injuries can cause permanent paralysis, chronic shooting pains in the extremities, or death.
A head injury is any damage to the brain, skull, or scalp. Common head injuries include concussions, brain contusions, and penetrating injuries. A traumatic brain injury is a disruption in the normal function of the brain due to head trauma. According to the Center for Disease Control, each year, traumatic brain injuries account for a substantial number of deaths or lifelong disabilities.
