Whether they are minor or major, spine and back injuries can significantly change a person’s life. These kinds of injuries are painful and include symptoms such as:
- Leg pain
- Shoulder or back pain
- Numbness in extremities
- Weakness in extremities
- Sciatica pain (when a disc herniation is in the lower back)
- Difficulty walking without pain
- Tingling in extremities or “pins and needle” feeling Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Muscle spasms
In the worst of circumstances, back and neck injuries can even result in paraplegia and quadriplegia – partial or full paralysis of one’s extremities or entire body.
Injuries to the back and neck include Cervical Spine Injury, Lumbar Spine Injury, Thoratic Spine Injury, Vertebrae Injuries, Interverebral Disc Injuries, Facet Joint Injuries, Neural Foraminae Injuries, Spinal Cord Injuries, Nerve Root Injuries, Sacrum Injuries, Degenerative Disc Disease, Herniated Disc Injuries, Spinal Fractures, Bulging Discs, Back and Neck Strains and Whiplash.
Whiplash is perhaps one of the more familiar neck injuries and is usually associated with a sudden impact or sudden stop related to a car accident.
Whiplash Symptoms Include:
- Neck pain and stiffness Headaches, most commonly at the base of the skull
- Blurred vision
Many people who suffer from whiplash notice these symptoms within the first 24 hours of an automobile accident, although it is not uncommon to notice whiplash symptoms a few days or weeks later (depending on the significance of other injuries).
