Four out of five adults will experience low back pain during their life, and it can be caused by a several factors coming to play with any of the three segments of the spine.
The most severe back and spinal cord injuries generally involve a degree of paralysis and potential for quadriplegia. These typically result from falls from significant heights, crushing injuries, motorized vehicle negligence, low speed impacts and sudden stops from rapid speed.
The spinal column itself is held in alignment by ligaments, cartilage and muscles that surround and offer protection to the spinal cord. Between each of the vertebrae is a spongy disc, which acts as a cushioning pad which absorbs pressure and allows the spine natural movement.
Serious complications can arise when a back injury does not heal properly, or when damage involves the ongoing loss of mobility for an accident victim. In both cases, quality of life is impacted as injury victims are not able to complete daily tasks.
