Understanding the Consequences of Untreated Spine Damage
There are several different circumstances that can cause damage to the spine, including traumatic accidents, cancers and infections. Broken bones, herniated disks, blood and other fluids can put pressure on the spinal cord, causing serious neurological damage.
If there is any reason to believe that you have suffered a spine injury, your doctor has a professional responsibility to order the right tests and follow up with appropriate treatment.
When a spine injury goes untreated because a doctor fails to order a scan or misreads the test results, the patient may eventually suffer loss of sensation, loss of bodily functions and paralysis in any or all parts of the body below the affected region of the spinal cord.
