No matter how severe, neck pain and back pain disrupt your life.
Someone else’s negligence is often the cause of most neck and back injuries, whether in a car crash, slip and fall, or injuries caused by working conditions that are less safe than they should be.
- repetitive motion
- moving or carrying heavy objects
- frequent bending
- careless driving
- reckless driver
- drunk/distracted driver
Repetitive muscle straining or acute trauma can cause permanent damage to your body. Even seemingly minor injuries can cause lifelong pain, restricting movement and limiting your ability to live an active life. Some specific neck or back injuries include:
- Sprain or Strain
- Herniated disc
- Fractured vertebrae
- Spinal joint pain (facet joints)
- All levels of paralysis
These injuries can also cause muscle spasms, loss of bowel or bladder control, breathing problems, incoordination, numbness or tingling in your limbs, and balance issues. Your medical treatment will depend on your symptoms and can include activity restrictions, medication, physical therapy, injections, and even surgery.
