Have You Sustained a Neck Injury as a Result of a Motorcycle Accident?

Neck Injury as a Result of a Motorcycle Accident

Have you sustained a neck injury as a result of a motorcycle accident? One of the most common injuries which result in a motorcycle accident are injuries to the neck and spine. The human spine is compromised of three segments that are all connected to form the spine. They include the: lumbar (lower), thoracic (mid/upper), and cervical (upper/neck) spine. Neck injuries can have a very severe impact on your daily life because movement in the neck is involved in almost all daily activities. The most common neck injuries that can occur are typical sprains and strains. These are what are commonly known as “whiplash” type injuries that can be very troublesome and require physical therapy and chiropractic treatment to heal. Higher impact motorcycle accidents may cause more severe neck injuries such as disc herniations and displacements. A neck injury can take more time to fully heal, and may even require surgical procedures

Serious Back Injuries as a Result of a Car Accident

Have you suffered serious back injuries as a result of a car accident or damage to your vertebrae or discs? If left untreated, serious back injuries can have lifelong effects, and may even lead to conditions such as paralysis and death. The spine is divided into three segments: the lumbar (lower), thoracic (mid/upper), and cervical (upper/neck) regions. A serious car accident can cause damage to one or all of these segments in the back, causing substantial pain and complications. Typical back injuries can include sprain/strains. These will cause pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion. Moderate sprains/strains can be treated through physical therapy and chiropractic treatment. Sometimes, these types of injuries may resolve on their own over time. However, more serious injuries to the back can include herniations and bulging discs. These types of injuries can be more serious and affect the nerves in the spine. Some tell-tale signs that there
