Back Injury and Spinal Trauma From a Louisville Car Accident

The long-term impact of back injury and spinal trauma from a Louisville car accident can affect every area of an injury victim’s life.  Spinal injury and back trauma can result in soft tissue injury such as herniated or ruptured discs or more serious injuries resulting in fusion procedures or permanent paralysis.

The severity of a spinal cord injury and the impact it will have upon the life of the injury victim often depends on the location of the trauma.   Injuries to vertebrae in the upper back and neck can result in severe trauma resulting in paraplegia (paralysis in the legs) or quadriplegia (paralysis of arms, legs and sometimes the torso).

In other cases, the patient may require back or neck surgery such as a lumbar or cervical spinal fusion.  Doctors may remove herniated discs and graft bones on either side of the injury to support and stabilize the spinal column.

In these cases, a bone graft from the pelvis or another location in the body is added to the injured portion of the spine and “fused” together to form new bone.  Surgeons may use screws and other metal hardware to hold sections of broken bones in place during the healing process.

These surgeries may carry a substantial amount of risk including the onset of infection, rejection of the implanted bone, blood clotting and potential nerve damage.  All back injury and spinal trauma from a Louisville car accident can result in the development of arthritis and/or other chronic pain.
