Everything You Need to Know about Back Injury

Back pain and loss of mobility due to back injuries is increasingly common. In fact, low-back pain related to back injuries is the single leading cause of disability worldwide, the most common reason for missing work, and the second most common reason for going to the doctor.

Common Causes

Some of the most typical causes of back injuries include: sports injuries, car accidents, falls due to ice or stairs, and injuries from lifting or bending doing yard work or job-related physical labor.

Common Types

Back injuries with debilitating effects include herniated disks, fractured vertebrae, and sprains and strains. These injuries can cause both pain and limited movement, many times requiring rest, icing, physical therapy, and sometimes surgery.

Effects of Back Injuries

Many people who suffer from back injuries are not able to participate in the activities they previously enjoyed. Some are no longer able to work as a result of the pain or immobility. And still others are not able to do simple daily tasks around the house, such as chores or taking care of young children.
