What are the various types of back injuries?
There are various types of injuries that can occur to the neck and back:
- Back Injuries –The inside of our backs include a complex combination of bones, muscles, and tissues that impact just about every movement we make. When something goes wrong with any part of our back, the entire bodily system can malfunction. Back pain is caused by a variety of things that can have workplace causes, including:
- muscle or ligament strains
- bulging or ruptured discs
- Herniated Discs – A bunch of rubbery cushions that sit in between each vertebrae in your spine. They are there to bones from grinding against one another. They have been described as little jelly donuts that keep us comfortable, but workplace injuries can cause these little discs to rupture or herniate.
- Neck Injuries –There are various ways that our necks can become injured. Our necks are basically extensions of our backs and where our spinal cord merges with the head. As the start of our spinal column and spinal cord, any injury here is going to cause complications. Neck muscle, tendon, and tissue injuries can lead to mobility problems.
What are the consequences of back and neck injuries?
Back and neck injuries range in severity. Symptoms can include short-term discomfort and pain that limits our mobility. However, these injuries can also lead to permanent disabilities that keep us from earning an income or enjoying our lives the way we are accustomed to.
