Back injuries can range in severity from minor soft tissue injuries to severe spinal cord damage. If you damage your spinal cord during a car accident, you may start to feel pain or lose control over certain parts of your body. Some spinal cord injuries are so severe that they cause weakness or complete loss of muscle function and loss of sensation in the body below the level of injury, loss of control of the bowels and bladder, and loss of normal sexual function.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Sometimes called “whiplash”, any damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons is often referred to as a soft tissue injury. There are many different types of soft tissue injuries. Whiplash occurs when muscles and ligaments in the neck are stretched too far due to the sudden impact of a car accident. It affects the neck, head, and upper back, and can cause severe pain.
The impact of the collision could cause your head to bump into the window, steering wheel or even the dashboard. As a result, passengers may suffer from concussions, traumatic brain injuries, or skull fractures.
