A minor back injury may not always have long term effects. The long term effects of a spinal injury, however, can be life changing. You may find you suddenly have a lot of expenses, and if you did not cause your injury, why should you be the one to pay? This is why Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you.
Coping with a spinal injury
Minor back and spinal injuries will usually heal so that you do not have problems again. You may have to be a little more careful with what you do, but you should still be able to carry on your life as normal.
Some accidents can damage the spinal cord so badly that you will be permanently disabled and need to make serious changes to your life. Damage to the spinal cord can affect your ability to walk. If the damage is bad enough, you could be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of your life.
Suddenly finding yourself unable to walk has physical and emotional challenges. Your home may need to be altered to allow for a wheelchair and you may have to pay someone to help look after you on a daily basis.
