Lumbar Spine Injuries Sustained in an Accident
Lower back (lumbar spine) injuries can result in serious and sometimes debilitating pain in the larger muscles of the lower back. Lumbar spine injuries can cause radiating pain, tingling and numbness in the buttocks, legs and feet, a condition sometimes called sciatica. Lumbar spine injuries can also include bulging disc(s), herniated disc(s), and may be severe enough to require surgeries, for example a spinal fusion.
Spinal Cord Injuries from an Accident
The central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal column. The spinal column basically sends messages throughout the body through “tracts,” which branch out to different parts of the body. Motor tracts, for example, allow the brain to communicate with various muscles. Sensory tracts carry signals from the brain about temperature, pressure, pain and limb positions.
If the spinal cord is injured or damaged, messages from the brain can get mixed-up or prevented from reaching their intended destination. This can cause such symptoms as paralysis, loss of feeling in certain areas of the body and loss of reflex functions. Spinal cord injuries can be very debilitating and can lead to secondary medical problems including infection, muscle spasms, loss of bodily functions, and over-sensitivity to temperature or pain in specific body parts.
Traumatic spinal cord injuries can result from a blow to the spine that breaks, dislocates, crushes or compresses one or more of the bones of the spine (also called “vertebrae”).
