Neck and back injuries can be life-changing. Damage ranges from a minor strain in your neck to paralysis of the spinal cord. Neck and back injuries can be the result of slip and falls, auto accidents, work injuries, bicycle accidents or pedestrian accidents.
The spine is divided into three areas; the cervical (neck area), thoracic (mid back) and the lumbar (lower back). Injuries can come in many forms. These include herniated discs, spinal fractures, whiplash, neck sprains and nerve irritations. People 65 and older are more susceptible to spinal fracture with about 1/3 of seniors falling per year. These injuries can lead people to experience long-term pain, loss of flexibility, bulging discs and paralysis. Neck and back pain effects your professional and social life.
