Causes of Back and Neck Injuries
Back and neck injuries may result from any number of circumstances, but most commonly occur as a result of:
Spinal Cord Damage from Back and Neck Injuries
Back and neck injuries are among the worst types of injuries that a person can incur, in part because the spinal cord that is situated in the back and neck is so important to the body’s functioning. Damage to the spinal cord at any point can result in:
- loss of sensation
- loss of function
- paralysis (temporary or permanent)
- decreased range of motion
- loss of bladder and bowel function
- recurring headaches, dizziness, tingling in ears and/or other body parts
- muscle spasms
- pain - acute and long-lasting
Long-Term Problems from Back and Neck Injuries
In addition, the problems that result from a back or neck injury can be very long lasting, even permanent. Back and neck injuries are often debilitating and traumatic injuries that make it impossible for the injured person to return to his or her job and normal daily activities. Permanent disability is an unfortunately common consequence of a neck or back injury.
