Spinal trauma

The spine is a very strong structure it is difficult to harm it

An episode of back pain happening during a physical activity is not usually due to an injury. Often self reported back pain happening in the work place is not due to structural damage and will get better quicker with a return to activity rather than rest.

Spinal trauma can be high energy or low impact

High energy trauma, such as a fall from a hieght or coming off a horse needs to be assessed as an emergency. The Spine Care Specialists have considerable experience of this and of the importance of post injury rehabilitation

Low impact spinal trauma can occur as a result of osteoporosis or underlying abnormality of the bones. Often specialist imaging is required a number of possible treatmenst , such as vertebroplasty can be very helpful.
