In brief: Injury to the neck

Neck trauma refers to any injury to the neck.
A neck injury can occur with a fall, a sports injury, a car accident, or other types of accidents. The injury to the neck can be a strain, a bulge or rupture of a disc (the pad between the vertebrae), a tearing of ligaments, or fracture (break) to one or more of the bones of the neck.
