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 tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
