Cervical Injuries in Albuquerque Car Accidents

- Mark Caruso

Albuquerque Car Accidents Can Cause Very Serious and Debilitating Cervical Injuries

Any car accident can cause serious personal injuries, even at low speeds, to the neck or spine.  This is particularly true of rear end collisions which put pressure on the spine, spinal cord, and the entire spinal column because of the whiplash motion.  The strain is particularly intense on the cervical spine which is also particularly susceptible to injury.  As a result, serious and debilitating injuries to the cervical spine (the neck) can require years of treatment and invasive surgery, including a fusion.

Common Injuries in Albuquerque Car Accidents

The spine is meant to protect the spinal cord, and it is does a very good job at doing so.  However, the spine is also susceptible to certain motions such as whiplash motions.  This can case the spine to hyperextend and then snap back quickly.  This can cause the material in between the individual vertebrae, discs, to come out of alignment, become damaged, and put pressure on nerves radiating out of the spinal cord.  This can cause pain throughout the body.
