Most of the time, when you suffer an injury, you experience pain and discomfort that gradually goes away as you recover. However, in some cases, people have had injuries that continue to be problematic for a long time afterwards. If you have constant back injury pain following an accident, you’ll know what we mean.
You will also know how frustrating it can be to have constant pain, and how debilitating it can be. You have probably sought medical help and you may be doing everything you can to reduce your symptoms, yet your life is still affected by what happened to you. If your accident wasn’t your fault, it can be even harder to try and get back to normal.
Accidents where constant back injury pain could result
Back injuries can occur through falls, either from a height or at ground level. A direct hit to the back or severe jarring can both cause injuries. Similarly, any accident that involves a heavy impact to the back can result in an injury. Think of a car accident, perhaps, or an accident involving someone being knocked off a bicycle or motorbike.
Similarly, while work accidents are uncommon, it could occur in this situation too. It is unlikely if you have good health and safety measures in place, but people have been hurt at work before now. Many circumstances can lead to injuries and an injury to the back has the potential to heal in some cases and not in others. You may be left with back pain for some time following your own injury.
