What are the risk factors for developing a herniated disc following a Skokie spinal cord injury?

Each year, many people will be injured in a Skokie IL car accident. The force from the impact of the accident could result in a herniated disc.

Certain risk factors increase the odds that you may suffer a herniated disc injury:

  1. Age If you are between the ages of 35 and 45, you have a higher risk of suffering a herniated disk following a Skokie car accident. This is because age related degeneration of spinal disks is most prevalent among the middle aged. 
  2. Weight  If your body weight is above the recommended maximum for your height and gender, you are at an increased risk of developing a herniated disk from a Skokie car crash. The extra weight adds stress to the disks in the lower back.
  3. Occupation According to the Mayo Clinic, if you have a physically demanding job that involves repetitive lifting, pulling, pushing, bending sideways, or twisting, your chances of suffering a herniated disk are increased.
