Information on Spinal Cord Injuries | After an Accident
A majority of injuries to the back and neck are strains to ligaments or muscles – and with the correct treatment, the pain may go away within a couple of months. However, sometimes the accident is so bad that long-term care is needed to address a herniated disc. If you are involved in an accident, back and neck pain can sometimes be felt immediately, or you may not feel any pain for the next few days. If you’ve suffered a back or spinal cord injury, contact our experienced Rochester spinal cord injury lawyers for a free consultation. You may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you sustained.
Information on Spinal Cord Injuries | Herniated Disc
A herniated disc (sometimes referred to as a ruptured or slipped disc) happens when the discs protecting the vertebrae of your spine are damaged. A herniated disc is the most popular injury in the lower back, or the lumbar spine. It can also happen in the neck (cervical spine) and occasionally, the upper back (thoracic spine). The herniated disc can press against your spinal nerves and cause severe pain and numbness in parts of the body where the nerve travels. A herniated disc can only be found by doing an MRI or a CT scan. If the accident you were involved in resulted in a herniated disc, be prepared to partake in a long recovery process.
