Spinal Cord InjuryThe damages done to the nerve or spinal cord can lead to changes in the ability to hold objects or feel sensation in body. It can lead to both temporary and permanent disabilities. In a complete injury, the nerves lose ability to feel any sensation, while in an incomplete injury, there is some sensory function possible. Severe damages can lead to Paraplegia and Tetraplegia.
Discogenic Back PainThis condition originates due to a damaged vertebral disc and can happen irrespective of a person sitting, lying down, or standing. It’s a form of shooting pain that moves across your body. The pain is hard to identify and needs careful assessment by a physician.
Lumbar Sprains and Spinal StenosisLumbar sprain due to a car accident or from holding heavy objects occurs when the tissues that hold our bones together detach or damage. It’s also the most common cause of back pain. On the other hand, spinal stenosis occurs when the small spinal canal that connects our spinal cord and nerve roots gets compressed leading to a pinching pain, weakness or cramping. Apart from back pain and injuries, auto accidents can also lead to trauma and emotional distress. Emotional distress can cause loss of focus and for many, be a primary reason for long term depression and anxiety.
