Back Injuries

It is very common for victims of automobile and workplace accidents to experience back pain and injury as a result of the accident. The human back is particularly prone to injury given the complex nature, structure, and makeup of the back. Often, accident victims will suffer injuries to the tendons, muscles, and ligaments that compose their discs, spinal cord, and vertebrae. The human spine is composed of 3 parts: cervical (upper) spine, thoracic (middle) spine, and lumbar (lower) spine. Depending on the nature and severity of the injury sustained, an accident victim may injure some or all parts of their spine.

Common injuries to the spine include vertebral spine fractures, subluxation, spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, flexion, compression, extension, sciatica, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, radiculopathy, herniated discs, and dislocations.

When a back injury occurs, it is routine to have diagnostic imaging performed, as well as extensive bouts of physical therapy. It is incredibly important that the back properly heal as an injured back can lead to issues in other parts of the body.
