Lots of car or truck crashes or other kinds of incidents result in disc traumas, which are traumas to the cartilage pads which exist among the bones of the vertebrae. Often, a disc compresses or degenerates due to injury. Some common disc conditions include disc bulges and herniated or ruptured discs.
A disc protrusion occurs when the outer fibers of the vertebrae disc weaken, enabling the center of the disc to protrude outward. Disc bulges are often the first step towards a more severe problem called a herniated disc. A herniated disc is comparable to a disc bulge, except that the external layers of the disc weaken to the point of tearing. A disc bulge in the lower spine can trigger back pain, numbness, tingling, sharp pain, or weakness in the feet or legs. A disc protrusion in the neck can create distress, however in some cases causes numbness, tingling, sharp pain or weakness in the arms or hands.
A herniated disc occurs whenever the outer fibers of the spinal disc tear, which enables the center of the disc to herniated or bulge outward. A herniated disc is more serious than a disc bulge, which is merely a weakening of the disc. Indicators of a herniated disc can vary significantly but can include lower back aches, numbness, weakness, leg pain, tingling, deep muscle ache and muscle spasms.
Whenever a man or woman injures his/her spine in a collision, long term pain, surgical treatment, or rehabilitation may result. You may not have the ability to ascertain the full degree of the injury to your back until time has passed following the accident. As a result, if an insurance adjuster pressures you to take a settlement deal shortly after an accident, you should not accept the offer until after you’ve consulted with a personal injury attorney.
