Have you been hurt or injured your back?
Unfortunately, back problems are increasingly common and one of the most common causes for people taking time off work. Although many people find that their back problems worsen over time, a sudden or unexpected injury can also cause on-going back problems.
As any damage to the spinal cord can affect a person’s mobility, a serious back injury could cause permanent damage. However, the majority of back problems do not involve severed spinal cords or unrepairable damage.
One common back injury is a slipped or damaged disc. As this type of injury can cause extreme pain, sufferers can find it difficult to move around or even walk at all. Whilst surgeons can sometimes operate on back issues, in some cases rest and then a period of physiotherapy is needed to try and ease the pain and repair the injury.
Unfortunately, once you’ve suffered a back injury, you can be prone to back pain so it’s important to take extra care once you’ve been injured. In some cases doctors may be able to recommend specific exercises you can do to strengthen the muscles in your back but it’s important to seek medical advice before embarking on any new fitness challenges, particularly if you’ve already suffered with back problems.
If you’ve recently suffered a back injury and it wasn’t your fault, you may be relieved to know that an injury solicitor in Pickering could help to make a claim for compensation. As many people who suffer long-term back problems are unable to work, they can find that there is a financial impact because of the injury as well.Open Claim Calculator
