Neck & Back Injury Lawyer
As a Texas personal injury lawyer, I routinely see how back and neck injuries are serious injuries. Many back injuries can involve the bone, muscle, or even the soft tissue. Typically, back injuries most commonly involve lower back pain or soreness. This is not because your lower back supports a majority of your body weight. The pain could be from a muscle strain or sprain, fractured vertebrae, herniated disc or sciatica. Neck pain is commonly caused by a trauma that has occurred like a fall or motor vehicle accident. Following an auto accident some might think that their neck pain or back pain might just go away on its own. It is important to seek medical attention from a chiropractor or orthopedic surgeon if you have are experiencing any tingling or burning sensations, stiffness, numbness, or weakness in your arms or on the side of the neck, blurred vision, difficulty talking or writing, or pain while walking.
Common Causes of Back and Neck Pain
- Slipped Discs- along the spine are little discs that absorb your everyday movements of walking, running, jumping, and falling. Having a slipped disc can be extremely painful as you will feel that something is out of place on your back.
- Sciatica- Sciatica is pressure on the sciatic nerve which causes pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the leg. The sciatic nerve is in the lower spine and travels down the back of the legs. It provides sensation to the legs and controls the back of the knee and lower leg. Sciatica is commonly caused by a slipped disc, pelvic injury or fracture. It is symptom of a medical problem and not independent medical condition typically.
- Impacted Range of Motion in the Neck- Whiplash is commonly associated with vehicle accidents. Whiplash occurs when a person’s neck is jerked backwards and then pulled suddenly forward. Neck injuries like whiplash can cause damage to both soft tissues and bone in the neck region. Depending on the severity, whiplash injuries can range from mild discomfort to a serious impacted range of motion.
- Back Pain- Acute back pain lasts a short time, between a few days to a few weeks. It is usually caused by an injury to the muscles or ligaments in the back. Chronic back pain is caused by repetitive motion, poor posture, arthritis, herniated disc, or conditions affecting the spine.
