Back and neck injuries are among the most common types of injuries resulting from car accidents and work-related accidents. The spine and vertebrae are central to so many musculoskeletal functions. The jarring impact of a high-speed collision or fall can inflict lasting damage to delicate nerve tissues and intricate bone structures.

Back injuries may start off benign, but later develop into a serious problem. The full extent of the damage is often not immediately apparent. Doctors may initially prescribe only a course of physical therapy and cortisone injections for pain, but when you fail to make improvements or start to backslide, further diagnostic testing may reveal a more significant issue such as an annular tear or herniated disk. The pain may become chronic, and it may inhibit your ability to work or perform daily activities. Unfortunately, many back injuries ultimately require surgery.

Common Surgeries

Generally, there are four common types of back and neck surgeries:

  • Laminectomy (decompression surgery): The goal of this surgery is to relieve pressure and pain by removing the back portion of the vertebrae.
  • Discectomy: This surgery involves removing a herniated disk that is putting pressure on nerves or the spinal cord.
  • Foraminotomy: This surgery involves widening the openings where nerve roots leave your spinal cord.
  • Spinal fusion: As its name indicates, this surgery involves fusing vertebrae together.

Each back and neck injury is different. Depending on your diagnosis, some of these surgeries may be performed through minimally invasive procedures. The recovery time may vary, spanning from weeks to months or years.
