Spinal Cord Injury
One of the most frequently seen injuries in trauma is a spinal cord injury. Car, motorcycle, bicycle and/or auto vs. pedestrian crashes frequently produce a spinal cord injury ranging from sprain/strain to the most serious – permanent nerve damage/paralysis.
It is critical following an accident that you receive proper medical management and evaluation to determine if your neck or back symptoms are simply soft tissue muscle/strain or the product of an underlying injury to your spinal cord.
Herniated or bulging discs can produce neck and/or back pain, sometimes accompanied by symptoms radiating to an arm or a leg. The cause of this condition may not be fully understood until exposed by proper medical work up often to include an MRI.
Sadly, for spinal cord injury victims, the prognosis generally includes some component of lifetime distress and, at best, is often low-level discomfort and, at worst, paralysis.
