There’s a lot riding on your spinal column. It’s your body’s main structural support. It needs to keep you stable enough to stand upright but flexible enough for movement, sadly just by simply slipping on ice you can get injured. So it’s no surprise that many people have back problems from time to time.
Severe back pain can occur in the top, entire, or lower back. Symptoms and signs of severe back pain may include stabbing or shooting pain, sharp pains, dull aches, or even numbness. Severe back pain can sometimes radiate down the individual’s leg, through the neck and arms, or other areas.
The pain may also limit a person’s range-of-motion or flexibility in the back. Whether a person can sue for their severe back pain depends on the circumstance surrounding the injury. Back pain can be caused various causes, including:
Motor vehicle accidents;
Slip and fall incidents;
Strikes or trauma to the back area (such as during a contact sport event);
Lifting or straining too hard; and/or
Various other causes.
An individual who suffers a slip and fall accident or some type of accident that causes lower back pain on another’s property may be able to sue the property owner.
According to the Litster Frost Injury Lawyers Review, this type of claim is often based on the property owner’s negligence in failing to maintain their property. To be successful in this sort of claim, the victim must prove certain elements for negligence.
The hurt can stem from sore muscles, ligaments, and tendons, or from herniated disks, fractures, and other problems in your upper, middle, and lower back. Sometimes you feel the effects right away. But in many cases, back problems develop over time.
We often bring on our back problems through bad habits, such as:
According to Galumbeck Plastic Surgery, poor posture like sitting incorrectly at a desk or behind the steering wheel will cause Bulging and Herniated Discs.
Repeating the same motion or overdoing it
Pushing, pulling, and lifting things carelessly
The spine is actually a stack of 24 bones called vertebrae. A healthy spine is S-shaped when viewed from the side. It curves back at your shoulders and inward at your neck and small of your back. It houses and protects your spinal cord, the network of nerves that transmit feeling and control movement throughout your entire body.
