Understanding The Consequences Of Damage To The Spine
The back is one of the most important parts of the human body because it is home to the spinal column and spinal cord. It is the core of the central nervous system, carrying signals back and forth between the brain and most of the other organs and muscles of the body.
When bones in the back are broken or become misaligned, or when the disks that separate the vertebrae become ruptured, these injuries can impact the entire body.
Often, persistent pain in other parts of the body such as the arms or legs is caused by bones or herniated disks putting pressure on nerves in the back. Many back injuries require surgical procedures such as arthroplasty, and some can even cause permanent paralysis.
Detecting The Nature And Extent Of Your Back Injuries
When you have suffered a back injury in an accident and you report to your doctor that you are experiencing pain elsewhere in your body, he or she will probably order a test such as an MRI to determine whether you have suffered an injury to any part of the spine.
Our personal injury attorneys are experienced at pursuing compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages associated with back injuries.
