Common Types Filing Your
Of Spinal Injuries
Some of the most common types of spine injuries include broken back, bruises, muscle strains, herniated discs and joint sprains. These ailments may require surgery to repair and can lead to lengthy recovery times and chronic pain that may require significant time off work – or prevent you from returning to work at all.
In many cases, spinal cord injuries can cause permanent nerve damage, disability and even paralysis. Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of paralysis, along with slips and falls and being struck by or caught between objects. Typically, the higher up on the spinal cord the injury occurs, the more severe the paralysis.
