What Causes Back Injuries and What Do They Entail?
Back injuries are one of the most common types of injuries and can be caused by many types of work activities or accidents including, but not limited to delivery truck accidents, construction accidents, slip and falls, and lifting injuries. Back injuries often result in damage to the spine and can be diagnosed after obtaining an MRI or other diagnostic study. Once seen on film, the doctors will be able to better classify the damage, usually described as herniated or extruded discs, bulging discs, fractured vertebrae, sprains or strains.
Back and spine injuries often result in either localized pain (in one area) or with a shooting pain that travels down the arms or legs resulting in pins and needles or a tingling sensation. Often, the hands and feet go numb or experience an electrical sensation. Even getting out of bed can be a daily struggle when suffering from a back injury. Driving to work and performing as expected is almost impossible and working on heavy pain medication can result in further accident or injury to the employee or injure others.
