What are c3 - c4 fractures?

c3-c4 refers to the discs in the cervical (neck) area of your spine. If they are "fractured" then you better be wearing a neck brace!

those are how they label ur vertebrae bones the 3rd bone and ur 4 th bone in ur neck is fractured that's all they mean


drdave1666
your neck has 7 cervical vertebra (bones that hold the head up)

c 3 and c4 are the 3rd and 4th bones inthe neck

fractures of these two bones is very serious and if not properly treated could result in death if the spinal cord at that level should become involved

cervicle spine fractures of the 3rd and 4th vertabrae

C3 – C4 is the location in the spine where the fracture has occurred. This particular location is at the third and fourth cervical vertebrae of your spine, which begins just below your skull and ends at your tailbone. The cervical vertebrae are the first 7 bones of your spine. The C3-C4 protects the area of the spinal cord that is responsible for movement of the deltoids, biceps, and Diaphragm. People with this type of injury may require ventilator assistance, and be paralyzed from the neck down.

cervical vertebrae #3 & #4.
These are located in the neck and between the upper shoulders.

It is a fracture (crack in bone) of the cervical vertebra the c3-c4 is the part of the vertebra closest to the base of the skull


olderandwiser
c-3 & c-4 are two connections in the spinal cord. These 2 are in the neck. So the neck is fractured in 2 vertabre.
