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.
