Causes of Spinal Injuries
Many types of accidents can cause spinal injuries. Trauma to the vertebrae in the spine can be caused by direct spinal impact, or it can occur because broken bones in the vicinity of the spine impact or sever the spinal cord (the bundle of nerves that runs the length of the spine).
Bruising and swelling can lead to temporary injury because of compression of the nerves, while more serious impacts can be permanent.
So what kinds of accidents cause such forceful impacts that they affect the spine? Here’s a look at some of the types of accidents that often lead to spinal damage in Boca Raton:
- Vehicle wrecks
- Falling from a great height
