Common Types Of Neck Injuries

Have you suffered neck injury at work?  If yes, you may be able to make a neck injury compensation claim.

There are a number of different types of neck injuries that can affect a person at the workplace. Here’s a look at some of the common types of neck injuries.

Soft tissue injuries

In most cases, neck injuries are limited to soft tissues only.  Whether it is a severe injury or a mild injury, it affects the muscles.

Muscle strain

Strains are injuries which affect the muscles responsible for moving the spine.  They can affect the neck as well as the lower back.  At the workplace, muscle strains can be sustained due to lifting heavy objects. Some of the symptoms include pain, reduced flexibility and muscle spasm.

Neck sprain

Injuries to the ligaments are called sprains and they can be caused due to sudden twists or falls.  They can also be caused due to repeated stress to the joint. Pain, reduced flexibility and swelling are some of the symptoms of neck sprains.

Whiplash

Although whiplash injuries are commonly caused in car accidents, they can also occur due to work accidents.  Falls from heights such as from scaffoldings and ladders or even raised platforms can result in whiplash injuries.  Whiplash can also be sustained if you are struck by an object falling from above.

Fractures

A break in the cervical bone results in a neck fracture.  Any kind of trauma or falls from height can result in fractures of the neck.
