Common causes of neck and back injury
Neck and back injuries can occur for a lot of reasons. However, some activities, occurrences and professions increase the chances of sustaining neck and back injuries. Some of them include the accidents below.
This includes accidents involving bicycles, motorcycles or pedestrians struck by vehicles. These accidents are responsible for many serious head and neck injuries as the impact of the accidents can cause a violent jerking of the head and neck. This can lead to serious injuries with devastating, long-term consequences.
An example of such injury is Whiplash which is an injury to the neck, caused by the rapid forward and backward motion of the head. It occurs mostly from car accidents though it can also be sustained during sporting activities. It is important to note that the symptoms of whiplash may not present immediately after the accident. A person may not feel stiffness and pain in the neck until after twenty-four or even forty-eight hours.
This is why it is important to seek medical attention and keep proper records when you or your loved one is involved in an accident. The medical records together with your records will make it easier to file a lawsuit if the accident was as a result of another party’s negligence.
Sporting activities like football, ice hockey, rugby, wrestling, skiing, swimming, diving, surfing, power weightlifting and horseback riding have recorded a high occurrence of neck injuries such as fractures and broken necks.
