San Mateo Spinal Disc Fracture Attorneys
Spinal discs, or intervertebral discs, are pads that are fixed between vertebrae. These discs are flat, thick with a tough outer membrane and held in place by ligaments that connect the spinal bones and the surrounding muscle. There is very little room for a disc to slip or move, and despite often being described as shock absorbers, they are actually hard and are not very elastic.
As people age, spinal discs become weaker and more prone to injuries. The pain of a spinal disc fracture is often debilitating and the resulting damage may often be irreversible, even with surgery. Seeking medical treatment is critical after any accident that results in injury to the spine or spinal cord.
