Blows to Rear High Section (back of neck)
Neck is the thinnest section of the spine. it should be stuck with a forward and downward blow or with a neck twist.
- Blow may cause a whiplash injury. Symptoms of neck pain and headaches may occur at latter date.
- Blow may break the neck causing complete paralysis below the break. If break is above the fifth cervical vertebra, death may be immediate. Break may cause loss of bladder and bowel control. The spinal cord is made up of numerous nerves; damage to any one of them may cause problems.
- Blow to the phrenic nerve, that leads to the diaphragm between the second and forth vertebra, may sever it and cause death due to respiratory paralysis. The nerve may be easily injured.
- Blow to concavity behind the ear between the mastoid process and the lower jaw may cause trauma to the cranial nerves and the spinal cord, resulting in the loss of sensory and motor function.
- Shock waves from the blow may reach the brain and cause concussion.
