List of Spine Injuries We Treat

  • Muscle Strains or Spasms
  • Cervical or Lumbar Radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve)
  • Sciatica
  • Vertebral fractures
  • Pars Defect or Spondylosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Foot drop
  • Acute/Chronic Neck or Back Pain
  • Degenerative Disc Disease



Signs and symptoms can vary depending on the type and location of the injury but may include:

  • Pain
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Bone Weakness
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control (in severe cases)
  • Limited Mobility.


  • Call for Emergency Help: Dial emergency services (911 in the United States) immediately to request professional medical assistance. Report the suspected spine injury and provide the exact location.
  • Keep the Injured Person Still: If you are not in immediate danger, avoid moving the injured person, especially their head, neck, or spine. Encourage them to remain as still as possible to prevent exacerbating the injury.
  • Support the Head and Neck: If necessary, gently support the injured person’s head and neck to keep them in alignment with their body. Do not twist or turn their head.
  • Immobilize the Spine: If you have access to appropriate materials (e.g., towels, clothing, or improvised cervical collars), you can use them to stabilize the head and neck while keeping the spine aligned. Be cautious not to apply excessive pressure on the neck.
  • Monitor Breathing: Continuously monitor the injured person’s breathing and be prepared to administer CPR if necessary. If they stop breathing, initiate CPR following appropriate guidelines.
  • Avoid Tilting or Lifting: Do not attempt to lift or tilt the injured person. If you need to move them to perform life-saving procedures (such as CPR), it’s essential to maintain spinal alignment during the transfer.
  • Stay Calm and Reassure: Keep the injured person calm and reassured. Encourage them not to move and await the arrival of emergency responders.
  • Provide Basic First Aid: If the injured person is bleeding or has other injuries that require immediate attention, address those injuries carefully without moving the spine.


Seek immediate medical attention if you suspect a spine injury, especially if there is paralysis, loss of sensation, or difficulty breathing. It’s essential to avoid any movement of the injured person until medical professionals arrive.


Recovery time varies widely depending on the type and severity of the injury. Some individuals may recover fully, while others may require ongoing care and support.


Some minor spine injuries may heal with rest and conservative treatments. However, more severe injuries, especially those involving fractures or spinal cord damage, often require medical intervention.


Spinal cord injuries often result in more severe symptoms, such as paralysis or loss of sensation in the limbs. Less severe spine injuries may involve localized pain, limited movement, or muscle weakness.


If there’s any suspicion of a spine injury, it’s crucial to avoid moving the injured person. Keep the spine immobilized and call for medical assistance immediately.


Not all spine injuries require surgery. The treatment approach depends on the type and severity of the injury. Many spine injuries can be managed with conservative treatments like rest, physical therapy, and medications.

Treatment varies depending on the specific injury but may include rest, pain management, physical therapy, immobilization with braces, and in some cases, surgery to stabilize the spine.
