Two Types of Back Injuries
Back injuries are not uncommon. In fact there are two commonly diagnosed back injuries that people suffer from. Those two back injuries include Spondylolisthesis and Cervical Radiculopathy.
- Spondylolisthesis- This is where one or multiple vertebra slip out of place. This typically occurs more towards the base of the spine. What happens is one of the lower vertebra slip either backwards or forwards over the vertebra bone beneath it. This can happen when the vertebra experiences trauma or a stress fracture.
- Cervical Radiculopathy- This type of back injury is based on the damage of the nerves in your cervical spine [neck]. If a vertebrae is compressed or a disc is torn or ruptured it could cause damage to the nerve roots in that area. When nerves are compressed in the cervical area of the spine it can cause serious pain, loss of sensation and/or weakness.
People can also suffer from a torn or ruptured disc in the spine. In cases where the spine is fractured or dislocated, the spinal cord is at risk which could lead to paralysis and permanent disability.
