Back Injuries: Common, Crippling And Expensive

Back injuries can be especially debilitating. When your back is damaged, it can be difficult to perform your work duties or complete simple tasks around the home, resulting in lost work hours and added expenses. Your back is a complex system of bones, nerves and other tissues that can be injured easily, even by a low-impact collision or fall.

Back injuries are among the most common types of trauma suffered in car accidents and workplace injuries.

The Ramifications Of A Serious Back Injury

Back injuries can include:

  • Soft tissue damage
  • Tears in the muscles and ligaments that hold the spine and back together
  • Disk injuries
  • Compression fractures

Soft tissue damage from the jerking motion of a car accident can result in injuries that take weeks or months to heal. Some individuals may even find themselves in a state of permanent pain and disability.

In disk injuries, the disks, which act as cushions within the spinal column, are damaged or ruptured. They can no longer separate the vertebrae and afford the back appropriate flexibility. Vertebrae can rub against each other, pinching nerves and causing pain and numbness. Injured disks often result in sciatica, a condition that involves shooting pain, tingling sensations and numbness in the leg.
