Can a back injury affect your quality of life?

Tennessee motorcyclists have to share the road with a lot of big vehicles. This can potentially be a big problem, considering the impact a motorcyclist will face in a crash compared to those in larger, more protected vehicles. Back injuries can be somewhat common, and they may have far-reaching consequences you don't think to anticipate.

Back injuries can range from what is considered relatively mild, all the way up to the possibility of paralysis due to spinal damage. On the more mild side of the spectrum, there are muscle tears and sprains, as well as possible bone breaks. Fortunately, breaking the spine doesn't mean the spinal cord will be damaged.

Muscular tears or damage can also vary in intensity. In some cases, if muscular damage is bad enough, it may require surgery to fix. This could also result in a person needing to take physical therapy to regain proper control of the muscles and to build up strength again.

Mayo Clinic also examines the effects of damage to the spinal cord, a most extreme form of back injury. If the spinal cord is damage, there is a severe risk of impairment to your movement, sensation, and strength in or around the area that has been impacted. Spinal cord damage can often occur in crashes, as the spine itself may be harmed.

On a whole, back injuries can take a long time to recover from. Regardless of the severity, you may want to speak to an attorney if you have back injury or pain because you could lose money through medical bills or lost wages during this time.
