Common Back Injuries in Florida

Your spine is durable, and a work of natural wonder when it comes to strength, flexibility, and durability. However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t prone to injuries, especially when it is subjected to repetitive or heavy force.

Let’s take a look at some common back and neck injuries that can occur while on the job.

  • Whiplash This is one of the most common injuries to the spine. Many times, it is caused by car accidents. The damage is done when a person’s head and neck are whipped forward faster than the body. Whiplash injuries typically involve neck muscles, ligaments, and tissues in the cervical spine and neck.
  • Thoracic Spine Injury This kind of injury involves the chest and mid-back areas. Thoracic spine injury can often be quite serious, causing permanent nerve damage. This can be caused by hard impacts that result from accidents like a car crash or construction site accidents. Symptoms can include spasms, tingling, weakness, and pain in the ribs, shoulders, arms, or legs.
  • Lumbar Spine Injury Heavy lifting is often the cause of this lower back injury. If your lower back muscles are stretched too far, damage can occur—along with painful swelling, soreness, and limited mobility.
  • Herniated Disc More commonly known as a herniated disc, this injury can also be called a slipped disc. Herniated discs happen when a vertebrae disc is out of place and in an uncomfortable spot. This can cause the bones to touch nerves, resulting in pain that ranges from dull to completely debilitating. Other symptoms are numbness, weakness, and sharp pains.
