At any point in our lives, we may be prone to suffering from back, neck, and spine injury. Whether it is due to the natural degeneration and wear and tear on the spine or other diseases, the back and spine will give way as we age. However, being involved in a car accident or other trauma can severely accelerate that process of injury. Traumas can often produce additional pain and discomfort.
The back is comprised of three major areas. The cervical or neck area is comprised of 7 vertebrae. The thoracic or mid back is comprised of 12 vertebrae. The lower back or lumbar is comprised of 6 vertebrae. Finally, the sacrum and the sacroiliac joints are at the bottom of the spine. A spinal cord injury occurs when the spinal cord becomes damaged or its nerves are compromised. Severe spinal cord injury can cause life-changing disadvantages such as paralysis or the loss of specific reflexes related to the closest point of injury.
