Some neck injuries result in temporary injury; however, neck injuries that are more severe can lead to total paralysis of the trunk and limbs. Depending on the severity of your neck injury, neck immobilization and rehabilitative efforts may be necessary for months or even years following the original injury.

Back Injuries

The back contains complex systems of muscles, bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, nerves and blood vessels. These systems can be easily injured from repetitive stress at work or by a sudden jolt from something like a car accident. The majority of people who suffer from back injuries are able to heal quickly; however, some stay impaired for months, years or permanently.

Common causes of back injuries are:

  • Twisting or pulling the torso suddenly
  • Improper lifting
  • Sports injuries
  • Auto accidents
  • Work-related incidents
  • Falls
  • Acts of violence
  • Repetitive stress

The most frequent types of back injuries are strains, sprains, herniated disks and fractures. Serious back injuries may require surgery. Symptoms of back injuries include:

  1. Pain that gets worse with movement
  2. Uncontrollable cramping or spasm of the muscles
  3. Reduced range of motion or decreased function such as trouble bending, standing straight or walking
