Types of Back and Neck Injuries
The most commonly seen cause of neck and shoulder pain involves injury to the soft tissues. Due to the structure of the neck and back, the human body has bones, tissues, and muscles that run from the neck all the way down to the tailbone. While this structure is what helps the human body to function properly, it also makes it susceptible for injury. Back and neck injuries are typically broken into two classifications: acute injuries and overuse injuries.
Acute injuries to the neck and back often involve a sudden action which strains, pulls, tears, rips, or damages a portion of the bone, muscle, or tissue in the impaired area. Acute injuries are often marked by an immediate bruising and swelling; however, the severity will alter based upon the particular type of injury and the strength of the impact which caused the harm.
Sprains and strains are amongst the most common types of acute and/or sudden neck and back damage. A strain is typically caused by some kind of pulling or twisting of the neck or back, forcing the muscle or tendon stress and pressure. In addition to strains, sprains are another very common acute injury. Generally speaking, sprains involve the tearing or stretching of a ligament.
Torn or ruptured discs are another type of acute injury; however these tend to be much more serious and severe than a simple strain or sprain. When a disc, which sits in between the spine and vertebrae, seek medical attention. In general, the physician will take a look at how you stand, sit, and walk to determine a baseline for the severity of the damage. Following a brief assessment of daily activities and reflexes, they may order a diagnostic test to look further into the injury. The most common type of tests include: MRIs, X-rays, and CT scans. Once the results are available, the doctor will come up with a plan for recovery. The following are the most common treatments for back and neck injuries:
- Physical therapy
- Medications (prescriptions or over-the-counter)
When a doctor give the accident victim a treatment plan, it is essential that this is followed. Following this treatment plan will not only help the injury to heal faster, but it will likely help to prevent any future damage from occurring.

I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
