Description: Traumatic injury mostly occurs in severe road traffic accidents (especially on a motorcycle) and falls from heights. Young men are most commonly affected. The position of the arm (as the injury occurs) will determine the levels involved. If the arm was held at the side, a C8-T1 injury is usual. However, if the arm is abducted, C7 is commonly involved.
