This injury occurs as a result of the forceful pushing and pulling of the vertebrae that make up the upper neck. This results in these vertebrae taking an unnatural position. The condition is named after the motion that results in the injury.
This is an injury that results from the creation of sore or tender spots along the spine. It can affect the muscles and ligaments. Inflammation involving stretched out ligaments can result in severe pain and take several months to heal.
Also known as a slipped disc, ruptured disc or bulging disc, this injury can be very painful. It occurs when a spinal disc is forced out of position. The disc may as a result press against the nerves exiting the spine. Herniated discs can result in numbness, significant pain or weakness in the limbs. These types of injuries often require surgery to correct.
These injuries affect the vertebrae. The bones can develop fractures as a result of high impact on the spine. This is often the case in a fall or motor vehicle accident.
This is an injury that results in causing the spine to curve sideways.
