Neck and Arm Pain

Facet Joint & Disc Injury

Neck and Arm Pain

Neck and arm pain are common yet debilitating symptoms that can arise after a vehicle collision. The resulting strain and trauma can lead to persistent pain and discomfort that radiates from the neck down through the arms, affecting muscles, nerves, and joints. Understanding the connection between these symptoms and their root causes is crucial for effective treatment and recovery. 


What is a Facet Joint Injury?

Facet joints are located between and behind adjacent vertebrae in the neck. They provide stability and allow smooth motion. A facet joint injury, often caused by car accidents, occurs when these joints become swollen or damaged due to sudden and excessive movement.

Symptoms of Facet Joint Injury:

  • Localized pain or tenderness in the neck
  • Reduced flexibility and stiffness in the neck
  • Pain that radiates to the shoulders and upper back

It's crucial to note that symptoms may appear immediately after the accident or may be delayed for several days.

What is a Disc Injury?

The spinal discs in the neck act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae and can be injured during accidents. A disc injury may involve a herniated disc, where the disc’s inner gel-like material leaks out and puts pressure on the spinal nerves, leading to pain.

Symptoms of Disc Injury:

  • Neck pain that can radiate into the arms, hands, and fingers
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms or fingers
  • Muscle weakness and difficulty gripping or lifting objects
