What Are the Types of Crush Injuries?

Crushing of the body or an arm, leg, or other body part can cause serious injuries that can potentially lead to chronic pain, disability, and reduced quality of life. These injuries include:

  • Crush syndrome: This condition involves a series of metabolic changes due to a severe injury of the skeletal muscles. It is characterized by significant systemic symptoms from toxins that are released by crushed muscle tissue.
  • Compartment syndrome: Crush injuries can cause a localized rapid rise of tension within a muscle compartment, leading to metabolic disturbances.
  • Compression syndrome: This is an indirect muscle injury caused by a simple, slow compression of a group of muscles, leading to damage and causing substances to enter the blood.
  • Spinal cord injury: When the spinal cord is damaged in a crush injury, the initial traumatic injury is followed by a long period of secondary symptoms. These include inflammation, oxidative stress, and necrosis (death of tissue cells).
