Most beach-related neck and spinal cord injuries are caused by the tremendous strength of the ocean’s waves forcing a person’s neck and spine into harmful, unnatural positions.
Dangerous activities that may result in neck and spinal cord injury include, but are not limited to:
Diving headfirst into waves or the water,
Jumping off of piers, rocks, jetties or surf boards; and
Any activity that puts you at risk for trauma to the head or neck.
