Herniated Disc C4/C5 and C5/C6 Injuries
The most common cervical disc injuries Maryland accident lawyers see are C4-C5 and C5-C6 injuries. As close as they are in the body, they cause different symptoms and present very differently.
Nerve Roots for These Injuries
Patients who have a C4-C5 car accident injury often complain primarily of weakness or pain in the shoulders or deltoids, and numbness and tingling is less commonly reported. In contrast, a C5-C6 injury from a car accident often causes numbness and tingling and radiating pain down to or near the patient’s thumb.
A C5-C6 accident injury also may cause weakness in the biceps and the wrist extensor muscles. Numbness and tingling along with pain can radiate to the thumb side of the hand. This is one of the most common levels for a cervical disc herniation to occur. Accident lawyers see less C6-C7 and C7-T1 injuries, relatively speaking, although they do often occur as the result of the trauma of an auto accident.
