Back strain following a motorbike accident

In motorcycle accidents, injuries to the lower back – such as strains and sprains – are very common.

Back strain following a motorbike accident

The human back is a complicated structure of bone and muscle, supported by cartilage, tendons and ligaments, and fed by a large number of blood vessels and nerves. The back – especially the lower back – bears much of the body’s weight during walking, running, lifting and other activities, including riding a motorcycle.

How do back strain motorcycle injuries happen?

A strain is an injury to either a muscle or tendon. Tendons are the tough, fibrous bands of tissue that connect muscle to bone. With a back strain, the muscles and tendons that support the spine are pulled, twisted or torn. Back strain injuries can happen when a rider is thrown from a motorcycle or when they fall awkwardly on a hard surface.

By wearing a back protector, an item commonly worn by motorcycle racers, riders can drastically reduce the chances of suffering back injuries.
