Symptoms of Back Injuries & Pain

According to The Mayo Clinic, symptoms of back pain include, but are not limited to:

  • Stiffness, pressure, tightness, or aching in the back and neck areas
  • Burning sensations or stabbing, shooting pains
  • Tingling or spasms down your legs
  • In extreme cases, leg weakness or bladder/bowel function loss

Both short-term and chronic back pain can happen to anyone. Ignoring such discomfort at a young age can lead to serious problems, and even advanced treatment or back surgery. Our Columbus back injury attorneys at KNR have the knowledge and understanding you need to navigate the legal process while also dealing with a painful personal injury.

Back Pain is a Major Cause of Discomfort and Loss

The American Chiropractic Association states that back pain is one of the most common reasons for missing work.

This type of discomfort moves is often an underlying cause of more significant and sometimes chronic problems. Back pain may inhibit you to the point of immobility.

It can also be difficult to diagnose and treat, creating a potential for long-lasting medical issues, loss of independence, and psychological scarring.

Common back injuries include:

  • Muscle or ligament sprains/strains – When you get into a motor vehicle crash or slip and fall at home, you risk incurring damage to your muscles or ligaments.
  • Bulging or herniated discs – When the soft center of the rubbery discs between your spine vertebrae weaken and tear, you might experience nerve compression and subsequent pain.
  • Spinal stenosis – When the bony areas of your spine compress the spinal cord and nerves, you might experience discomfort in your back.
  • Degenerative disc disease – Known as osteoarthritis of the spine, degeneration of your spinal discs could cause back pain that makes it challenging to complete everyday tasks.
  • Arthritis – If the joints in your back become inflamed, you may experience pain and stiffness that worsen over time.
  • Scoliosis – Scoliosis occurs when your spine curves sideways. Such a curvature can cause your spine to stretch, irritating your nerves and causing a great amount of discomfort and pain.

What to Do Following a Back Injury

While back and neck pain is sometimes difficult to diagnose and pinpoint, there are a variety of treatments to people suffering from any level of pain. Medical professionals at Ohio State’s Wexner Center recommend a number of treatment options, including:

  • Massages, chiropractic adjustments, and occupational therapy
  • Moderately non-invasive treatments, including acupuncture and tissue manipulation techniques, and integrative medicine
  • Spinal surgery

If you have experienced back pain after a work or automobile accident in Ohio, you should contact a personal injury lawyer immediately, as the Ohio statute of limitations expires after two years.
