Back Pain Common After Slip And Fall Accidents
Although it may seem minor, slip and fall accidents can have serious consequences. Here are some symptoms to watch out for if you’ve suffered a back injury related to a slip and fall:
A strong back is important for performing basic activities, such as walking and playing sports. When you’ve suffered a back injury, you may begin to feel as if you’re less stable, or have lost some of your balance.
Injuries to your back can materialize in pain elsewhere in your body. If you begin to experience pain in previously pain-free regions of your body, such as your neck and head, it could be related to your fall.
Bladder issues are a common side effect of back injuries. Both bowel and bladder incontinence can be experienced as a result of a slip and fall.
Serious back injuries can also limit your range of motion, potentially resulting in the loss of motion in your upper or lower extremities.
