Back Injury First Aid
First Aid performed on a casualty with a back injury must be conservative and will depend on the severity of the back injury. If in any doubt about the level of back injury sustained the injured party should not be moved and medical assistance should be called for, to ensure that the severity of the injury is not compounded.
Lower Back Injury Treatments
For lower level back injuries a range of treatments can be applied from hot or cold back pain relief treatments to the use of a first aid back support to stabilize the injured muscles whilst the injured body increases their mobility. Equally a range of strapping tapes can be used and applied to injured muscle groups in the back.
