Understanding the True Extent of Neck & Back Injuries

In some cases, neck and back injuries may be minor with no permanent consequences other than temporary symptoms, such as sore muscles; however, that is not always the case. If you have been involved in an accident (such as a tractor trailer wreck or a car crash / car accident), you could suffer a permanent neck, back, or spine injury. Some of the common tests used to diagnose neck, back, and spine injuries include X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, myelograms, and more.

These tests may find a wide variety of neck and back injuries, including the following:

  • Injuries to Vertebrae (Bones in the Spine)
  • Strained Muscles
  • Sprains
  • Herniated or Bulging Discs
  • Fractured Bones
  • Cervical Dislocation
  • Nerve Impingement
  • Spinal Cord Damage
  • Stenosis
  • Degenerative Disc Disease (Exacerbation)
  • Tears / Scarring of the Soft Tissue Near the Spine
  • Nerve Damage

As there is such a large range in severity of injuries, it is critical that you work with a Lexington personal injury attorney who will be able to provide answers to your legal questions and an explanation of your legal rights.
