Car Accident Injury to Cervical Spine, C3 and C4 disk removed and fused
by robert s.
On November 10th,2010, while stopped at a red light, my car was rear ended. From that point on I was unable to look all the way up without pain going down my back and severe headaches.
I also had trouble sleeping. I continued to work as a police officer. But these injuries affected my job performance from November 2010 until January 2012.
I went to physical theropy or the chiropractor 3 days aweek with little to no relief.
I also had 3 pain injections with no relief. On January 3rd,2012 I had surgery to remove by bulged disc between my c3 and c4 and had a fusion done.
This seems to have helped me. I am back to work and have very little pain. I have a scar on the front of my neck that is about 2 inches long and some numb feeling in the area.
