Common types and causes
The most common cases of neck and spinal injury are:
- Road traffic accidents
- Whiplash is the more minor of the neck and spinal injuries but serious injuries can have lasting affects. Your head is a heavy party of your body and if you’re thrown forward in a road traffic accident your spine and neck will take the force of such impact
- Accidents at work
- Lifting heavy items or working at height can mean there’s a higher risk of having an accident
- Falling from a height
If you’ve fallen from a height, be it at work or in a public place, then your neck and spine will have taken the impact. This could have a lasting affect on your body and may even mean you’re unable to walk again.
Your spine and neck is an extremely complicated matrix made up of 24 tiny bones. They’re encased in muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. When these are damaged it can be excruciatingly painful and can have long-term affects.
Depending on the cause of your accident, you may be experiencing a wide variety of issues as a result. These can range from intense whiplash to a broken spine, fractures or even paralysis.
A serious injury that affects your neck or your spine could mean that your daily life and your future has been significantly altered. From being able to drive, the ability to dress yourself. or even go to work, your accident will have impacted your life and that of your family.
