Neck And Back Injury Severity May Not Be Immediately Apparent

Neck and back injuries can happen regardless of how severe an accident may seem. For example, numerous individuals involved in rear-end collisions refuse immediate medical treatment because they feel fine. However, hours, days or even weeks later, the pain may set in. It does not matter what type of accident you are involved in, the moment you notice symptoms of neck and/or back injury, it is wise to seek immediate medical attention. The severity of your injury may not be immediately apparent and swift treatment is needed to hopefully prevent lifelong consequences.

Common neck and back injuries include:

  • Soft tissue damage
  • Herniated disks
  • Ruptured disks
  • Bone displacement
  • Nerve damage

Some injuries to the neck and back only require physical therapy to treat. Those that are more severe may require surgery, physical therapy and months, if not years, of follow-up care. Some individuals, despite medical intervention, will end up with chronic pain, limited range of motion and other issues.
