Common Types of Back Injuries
Back pain is caused by sprains and muscle strains, after an accident, or due to an injury. The two main types of back injuries are the following:
Spondylolisthesis – Typically, this means a vertebra at the base of the spine as slipped. Slipping backward, forward, or over is caused by a fracture to the wing-shaped parts of a vertebra.
Cervical Radiculopathy: This means nerve damage in the vertebra, typically indicated that the nerve roots of the cervical vertebra have been compressed. This can be very serious, causing pain and weakening as well as numbness in the arms and neck.
