Spinal injuries caused by trauma are often serious conditions that can greatly impact a patient’s mobility and comfort. Injuries are caused by anything you weren’t prepared for—a fall, a crash, an accident—these kinds of trauma don’t give your body time to try and protect itself and minimize the damage. Accidents are a common cause of back injury, including lower back injury. Furthermore, if left untreated, injuries to the spine can worsen and impact other areas of the body as time goes on.
SYMPTOMS OF SPINAL INJURIES
Depending on the severity of the injury to a patient’s spine, symptoms are likely to vary greatly. Some of the most common that patients experience are limited or complete loss of movement, numbness or lowered sensitivity, spasms, stinging sensations, difficulty breathing or coughing, or even loss of bowel or bladder control. More serious symptoms include extreme pain or pressure in specific areas of the spine or limbs, loss of feeling in hands or feet, loss of balance, difficulty sitting, standing, or walking, or mispositioned spinal alignment.
CAUSES OF SPINAL INJURIES
As you may know, trauma to the spine can be caused by any kind of movement or impact that your body was not able to protect itself from. Trauma to the spine can occur from lifting a heavy object, moving or twisting suddenly, and straining the spine, car accidents, incorrect posture, falling, sports, and more.
