What You Need to Know About Spinal Cord & Back Injuries
The spinal cord is comprised of millions of neurons and spinal nerve cells
that extend from the base of your brain and run down the length of your
back. These neurons serve as receivers of electrical signals sent from
the brain to control the body’s physical, mental, and psychological
functions. From moving the fingers to keeping the entire body upright,
the spinal cord impacts the way you feel, move, sense, and perceive the
things around you. Any sort of injury sustained to the spinal cord can
result in serious damage to loss of function, paralysis, or loss of sensation.
work injuries that initially seem minor actually turn out to be very serious. Mild back
pain or numbness in the arms or legs can actually be caused by serious
spinal problems like disc herniations, bulging discs, or pinched nerves.Common
symptoms and side effects include: Whiplash, paralysis and / or quadriplegia,
significant changes to mood (uncontrollable mood swings), and inability
to touch, sense, or feel (including temperatures).
The best way to make sure you are getting the proper medical treatment
for your back or neck injury is to go see a doctor as soon as possible.
Even if your employer tells you not to, visiting a doctor’s office,
occupational clinic, or emergency room is strongly recommended.
