Types of Neck Injuries

Whiplash

Whiplash is a type of neck injury that occurs when the head is suddenly thrown forward and then snapped back, causing the neck to whip back and forth in a sudden and violent motion.

It is a common injury in car accidents, particularly rear-end collisions, but it can also occur in other types of accidents, such as sports injuries or falls.

Whiplash can be a serious injury that can cause significant pain and discomfort, and in some cases, it can lead to long-term complications.

The symptoms of whiplash include:

Treatment for whiplash typically involves rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), and pain management with over-the-counter medications or prescription painkillers.

In some cases, physical therapy or chiropractic care may also be recommended to help improve range of motion and reduce stiffness in the neck.

If you find yourself grappling with the relentless effects of whiplash, you’re not alone. Numerous legal websites estimate that at least 3 million Americans per year sustain whiplash injuries. [1]

Herniated Discs

Herniated discs are a common result of neck injuries. A herniated disc can cause severe pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the neck, arms, or hands.

If you have a herniated disc due to a neck injury, you may require surgery, physical therapy, or other medical treatments to manage your pain and improve your quality of life.

Herniated Discs

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are among the most severe and life-changing injuries that can result from a neck injury. These injuries occur when the spinal cord is damaged, resulting in partial or complete loss of sensation and mobility. 

The consequences of spinal injuries can be devastating, potentially resulting in partial or complete paralysis, loss of bladder and bowel control, difficulty breathing, and chronic pain.

About 12% of spinal cord injuries result from violent encounters, usually from gunshot wounds. Knife wounds also are common. [2]

Concussion-Like Symptoms

Common concussion-like symptoms associated with neck injuries may include headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, difficulty concentrating, memory loss, and sensitivity to light and sound. You may also experience neck pain and stiffness, jaw pain, and ringing in the ears.

Other Types of Neck Injuries

There are several other types of neck injuries that can result from various accidents or trauma. These injuries include:

Common Causes of Neck Injuries

Car Accidents and Neck Injuries

Car accidents are a common cause of neck injuries. With a high number of vehicles on the road and busy traffic patterns, the risk of a motor vehicle accident is present at all times. Even a minor accident can result in a neck injury, such as whiplash, which can cause severe pain and discomfort.

Slips and Falls from Unsafe Conditions on Property or at Workplace

These types of accidents occur when an individual slips, trips, or falls due to hazardous conditions. Hazardous conditions may include wet or slippery floors, uneven surfaces, or debris in walkways.

Neck injuries from slip and fall accidents can cause symptoms like neck pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion, which can significantly affect a person’s daily life.

Workplace Accidents Involving Heavy Machinery or Equipment

Such accidents can occur in a variety of industries, including construction, manufacturing, and transportation. Workers who operate heavy machinery or work in environments with dangerous equipment are often at risk of neck injuries.

Neck injuries resulting from workplace accidents can include herniated discs, spinal cord injuries, and nerve damage. These injuries can require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and time off work. In some cases, they can even result in permanent disability, impacting an individual’s quality of life long-term.

Private industry employers reported 47,800 nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses in Oregon in 2021, resulting in an incidence rate of 3.8 cases per 100 full-time equivalent workers, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. [3]
