The neck (cervical spine) is comprised of seven bones (C1-C7 vertebrae), that are separated by discs. These discs give your spine the ability to move freely while also acting as shock absorbers. When the neck is injured, it can cause serious issues due to the fact that most of the nerves that travel to the rest of the body pass through the neck. Unfortunately, neck injuries are extremely common, especially in an auto accident rear-ending or slip-and-fall.
Neck injuries are not always easily shown on an MRI or X-ray, so they typically require a visit to a specialist such as a neurosurgeon in order to receive a diagnosis and proper treatment.
