How are spinal injuries different from other injuries?
The spinal column is made up of vertebrae, bones that surround and protect the spinal cord, which controls the body’s ability to move and feel. Some common causes of spinal injuries include:
- Auto accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Repetitive movements
- Lifting heavy objects
- Pushing heavy objects
- Improper use of protective equipment
How to determine if pain is a sign of something serious
Spinal injuries are serious and can have long-lasting effects if left untreated. If the spinal cord itself is injured, you may experience difficulty walking or staying balanced, muscle weakness or incontinence. For most patients, however, the biggest telltale sign is pain in the back, neck or head. The pain could indicate a hernia, often referred to as a "slipped disc." If the pain radiates down the back and through your leg, you could be experiencing sciatica. Without proper medical treatment, the pain could become permanent.
