There are 12 thoracic vertebrae within the spine which are numbered one to 12. Damage to any of these vertebrae within the nerve or tissue can have effect other areas of the body as the communication between brain and body is damaged. A T2 spinal injury may affect the upper posterior of the arms. If you have suffered a T2 spinal injury in the last three years which someone else was responsible for, contact Accident Advice Helpline for free initial advice about compensation.
How severe is a T2 injury?
How severe the T2 injury is will depend on the exact damage caused. The injury may be complete or incomplete which will determine whether the damage is permanent or life-long. Victims may experience lack of mobility or feeling and this could also lead to mental health problems.
Thoracic spinal injuries are rarer than other regions of the spine because the thoracic spinal area (T1-T12) is protected by the rib cage. Some people are affected by an illness or birth defect but others are victims of accidents who have suffered a severe trauma such as a car accident.
