Are you suffering from a slipped disc?
As anyone with back problems knows, a slipped disc can be an extremely painful injury. Also known as a prolapsed or herniated disc, it occurs when one of the discs in the spine ruptures. This can allow the gel inside the disc to leak out.
When this occurs, the pain can be over-whelming. In addition to having localised pain at the area in which the injury has occurred, the additional pressure on your nerves could mean that you suffer pain throughout your back and even in your legs.
Although this type of injury can occur in numerous ways, you may find that a fall or collision could result in a slipped disc. If the incident was caused by someone or something else, you may even be able to obtain compensation.
Whilst most people do recover with a combination of physiotherapy and medication, sometimes surgery may be required. Due to the pain and possible numbness, you may find it difficult to move around normally due to the injury. In addition to this, you may find it difficult to get comfortable when you lie or sit down. This can result in people becoming tired and fatigued throughout the recovery process.
However, if your doctor is aware, they may be able to provide stronger pain medications which could help you tolerate the pain and catch up on your rest.
As this type of injury can have a significant impact on your everyday life, you may find that you’re eligible to receive a sizeable amount of compensation. If, for example, you’re unable to work whilst you’re recovering and you lose income as a result, your personal injury solicitor in Pattingham may be able to request that your compensation award is increased accordingly.
