North Jersey Spine Carefully Handles Traumatic Spine Conditions

S

pinal cord injuries occur from various traumas to vertebrae, discs or ligaments. Depending on the injury, trauma can take place in the neck, the cervical, thoracic, upper, sacral, or coccyx spine. Traumatic spinal cord injuries and fractures often result from hard impact or penetrating invasive wounds, which cause one or more of the vertebrae in the spine to compress, tear and even dislocate. Common traumatic spinal conditions most often occur from work-related injury, motor vehicle accidents, sports injury, violence and impacting falls.

Understanding Symptoms of Traumatic Spine Conditions

Following a traumatic spinal cord injury, individuals can experience uncomfortable symptoms. It is important to seek proper medical treatment immediately following any of these symptoms: back or neck pain, numbness, tingling, muscle spasm, weakness, inflammation, bleeding or fluid buildup around the spine, and bowel or bladder function changes. Sometimes these traumatic spine conditions can cause paralysis. Spinal cord injuries can also cause various levels of pain due to ligament and muscle strain.

It is important to seek proper medical treatment immediately following any symptoms that imply nerve damage.
