Symptoms of Serious Neck & Back Injuries
Any neck or back injury can be serious, and all known or suspected neck and back injuries require immediate medical attention. However, you may not realize right away that you have sustained a potentially serious injury. Because of this, it’s important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of a serious neck or back injury.
Some of these signs include:
- Extreme neck or back pain
- Neck, head, or back pressure that will not go away
- Weakness or paralysis in any part of the body
- Inability to move arms or legs
- Numbness, tingling, or loss of sensation in the hands, fingers, feet, or toes
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Difficulty with standing, walking, balance, or coordination
- Difficulty breathing
- Head or body contoured in an unnatural or awkward position
What to Do If You See Symptoms of a Serious Neck or Back Injury
With any of the symptoms above, assume that a spinal cord injury did occur and take the following steps:
- Call 911 immediately
- Immobilize the head, neck, and shoulder to prevent movement
- Do not attempt to move the person unless they are in danger (such as in a burning vehicle or another immediate zone of danger)
- If the person needs to vomit, roll the head, neck, and body as one unit so the individual rests on their side (keeping the head, neck, and back in line during rolling)
- If the person is not breathing, proper CPR may be required
- If the person does not have a pulse, begin chest compressions
