    Have you suffered a T4 back injury?


    Our vertebrae, the bones in our spine, are named and numbered medically from T1 up to T12 and the most common injuries to our backs occur in the T4 section. A T4 back injury may be accompanied by arm pain and result from excessive bending, lifting, twisting or from poor posture. If your T4 injury was caused by an accident which was not your fault, you may want to find out more about your options and Accident Advice Helpline can help.

    Symptoms and treatment of T4 injury

    Someone suffering from a T4 injury may experience some or all of the following symptoms:

    • Arm or shoulder pain
    • Pain when moving
    • Nerve problems
    • Pins and needles
    • Tingling sensations
    • Weakness
    • Stiffness/aching

    You should see a doctor if you are experiencing any of the mentioned symptoms to confirm a T4 injury and get help with recovery and treatment. Treatment for a T4 injury may include:

    • Physiotherapy
    • Posture analysis
    • Back brace to improve posture
    • RICE method (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation)
    • Painkillers
    • Anti-inflammatory medications (e.g. ibuprofen)

    Can you make a claim for a T4 back injury?

    If your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence and it happened in the last three years, requiring medical attention, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    Compensation may help with treatment costs and any time taken off from work. It may also help you to move on from your ordeal. To find out if you can make a claim, you can call our team for quick confirmation and helpful advice about your next steps and there is no obligation to make a claim.
