c-3 & c-4 are two connections in the spinal cord. These 2 are in the décolletage. So the neck is fractured in 2 vertabre.
c3-c4 refers to the discs in the cervical (neck) nouns of your spine. If they are "fractured" then you better be wearing a neck brace!
fractures within the 3rd and 4th vertebrae of the neck
cervicle spine fractures of the 3rd and 4th vertabrae
C3 – C4 is the location in the spine where the fracture have occurred. This particular location is at the third and fourth cervical vertebrae of your spine, which begin 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 explicitly 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.
