The North Jersey Spine Group – Experts in Spine Trauma
pine trauma occurs when the forces applied to structures of the spinal column overwhelm the mechanical stability of those structures. Typically, this happens during high speed accidents, falls, or sports. However, even lesser forces can cause spine trauma if the spine is already weak or vulnerable because of pre-existing arthritis, degeneration, or bone loss.
Spine trauma can cause pain arising from damaged bones and joints. More seriously, trauma can disrupt the normal alignment of the vertebral column, causing pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. The result can be pain radiating to an arm or leg (radiculopathy), weakness, spinal cord injury or even paralysis. It is important to seek medical treatment immediately after experiencing spine trauma. Certain neck pain or back pain, if not treated soon, can become permanent.
