Spinal Trauma

Spinal trauma occurs when the spine is damaged from a blow or cut, typically caused by car accidents, falls, or sports injuries, which result in a fracture to the vertebrae.


Spinal trauma can occur anywhere along the spine – from the cervical spine (neck) to the lumbar spine (lower back) and sacrum (bottom of the spinal column).
