Injuries to your thoracic spine are often the result of motor vehicle accidents.
The thoracic spine is the mid-back part of your spine. Thoracic spinal injuries can include disc herniation, compression fractures, spinal cord impingement and many others.
The symptoms can include any one or more of the following: chronic pain, numbness in the limbs, difficulties breathing, pain in the rib cage area, loss of function, weakness in the legs, weakness in the back or even paralysis. Surgery in some cases may improve thoracic spine injuries but likely will not resolve the injury. Side effects from surgery may include a worsening of the symptoms, sometimes paralysis and very often no improvement in the symptoms.
MRI radiographs often are essential to proving the existence of a thoracic spine injury to ICBC and the courts.
