      Introduction. Although links between spine injuries, spinal cord injuries (SCI), or both, and traumatic brain injury (TBI) have been reported, the precise features of the injuries have not been described in detail.1,2 The reported incidence of cervical spine trauma after clinically significant head injury generally ranges from 4% to 8%.3–5 Acute spinal cord trauma in all spine segments. The first 4 cervical spinal nerves, C1 through C4, split and recombine to produce a variety of nerves that subserve the neck and back of the head. The spinal nerve C1 (suboccipital nerve) provides motor innervation to muscles at the base of the skull. C2 and C3 form many of the nerves of the neck, and provides both sensory and motor control.

    The spinal accessory nerve originates in the brain and enables motion in the trapezius and sternomastoid muscles in the neck. A spinal accessory nerve injury can be caused by trauma or damage during surgery, resulting in shoulder pain, "winging" of the shoulder blades and weakness of the trapezius muscle. The brain, the spinal cord and the peripheral nerves are the three major The spinal cord is a long body of nervous tissue that located inside the spine. It starts at the base of the brain and ends at the bottom of the spine near the buttocks. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by a violent force that is applied to the head. Motor.

The spinal cord begins at the bottom of the brain stem (at the area called the medulla oblongata) and ends in the lower back, as it tapers to form a cone called the conus medullaris. Anatomically, the spinal cord runs from the top of the highest neck bone (the C1 vertebra) to.

Cervical nerves are spinal nerves that arise from the cervical region of the spinal cord. These nerves conduct motor and sensory information via efferent and afferent fibers, respectively, to and from the central nervous system.

While classified as peripheral nerves, the motor cell body resides in the anterior horn of the spinal cord. There are eight pairs of cervical nerves, denoted C1 to C8.
