The Lower Back is referred to as the Lumbar Spine. The lumbar spine is extremely important to the entire spine and the overall health of Las Vegas accident victims. The symptoms that clearly indicate an accident victim has suffered more than just a soft tissue lower back injury, but instead has likely suffered an injury to his or her disc in the lumbar spine include the following:

The Thoracic Spine is the Middle Spine. Injuries to the Middle or thoracic spine as a result of an accident are less common. These types of injuries are more common as a result of pedestrian accidents and motorcycle accidents. This is due to the biomechanics of a pedestrian accident, wherein the legs are thrown out from underneath the pedestrian and the pedestrian is flung up and over or under a motor vehicle. This is also due to the nature of a motorcycle accident, where the motorcycle rider is often thrown from his bike.
Thoracic spine symptoms can closely resemble those of the lumbar spine and it requires proper diagnostic treatment and testing from medical providers, both pain management doctors, orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons, to properly differentiate between thoracic spine injuries and lumbar spine injuries.
While fusions and discectomies are available for lumbar and thoracic spine injuries, another type of surgery or treatment is also available. This includes a spinal cord stimulator implant. The spinal cord stimulator option is often used when a fusion is risky due to the number of surgeries the patient has already underwent or due to the age of the accident victim. Accident victims who undergo spinal cord stimulator implants will need surgeries every few years to change the batteries in the stimulator. The spinal cord stimulator is not typically used for neck injuries.
When accident victims undergo single, double, or even triple level fusions, they run the risk of future adjacent level breakdown. This is a term used in the medical industry to refer to the future fusions that a victim of an accident who gets a fusion will need. In other words, one fusion means more fusions in the future. Therefore, if you were in an accident and needed a fusion surgery you need an attorney who can get you enough future compensation to pay for these future surgeries that you will need.
