Common Spine Injuries

Consisting of bony vertebrae plus spinal discs, muscles, ligaments, tendons, fluid, and your spinal cord; injury or damage to any of these areas can cause spine problems. The symptoms of common spine injuries often depend on which nerves are affected. Spine problems cause back pain, which may limit or get worse with movement. Spine injuries that affect your spinal cord can lead to a wide range of symptoms because your spinal cord carries nerve signals throughout your body.

Experiencing Back Pain?

The most common cause of spinal injury is trauma. Almost half of all injuries to the spine are caused by car crashes. Sporting activities such as diving, contact sports, horseback riding, and others are also common sources of injury. Arthritis, joint disease, repetitive strenuous activities, improper lifting, and tumors are other common causes of non-trauma-related spine problems. Spine conditions can also be present at birth.

Common spine injuries include:

  • Herniated discs
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal cord compression
  • Spinal nerve compression
  • Spinal deformity
  • Spinal fractures
  • Spinal tumors
