The pain caused by a hernia may extend from the back towards the leg and lead to leg pain, or to the arm. Most often, the rupture disk occurs by effect of natural aging and deterioration, but can also occur in younger people due to various causes.

If the spine is very biased, it may cause bodily asymmetries as the ribs or hips protrude from one side to the other or that one shoulder is lower than the other. Depending on the affected column portion we distinguish between lumbar scoliosis (low back), dorsal scoliosis (top of the column) back and lumbar scoliosis.

It is indicated in cases where there is significant compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots, and when it is due undoubtedly to the structural abnormality detected. One of those treated by surgery of cervical spine injury is a herniated disc. Cervical surgery may be necessary to reduce pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, when pain is caused by a herniated disc or a bone of spinal canal. Trauma surgery may also be required to stabilize the cervical spine and minimize the possibility of paralysis, when a fracture or dislocation causes a vertebral instability. Likewise, cervical surgery is also used in case of degenerative diseases. ...
The spinal fracture is a break or the collapse of one of the bones of the spine. This can happen for a strong impact in the area or for the loss of bone mass, osteoporosis caused by eg. Although removal of bone mass may also occur for other cusas: cancer, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hyperthyroidism and long-term use of corticosteroids.

Symptoms include a sudden onset of pain or a chronic, dull back pain and weakness or immobility of all or any part of the body. Traditional treatment for spinal fractures includes extended bedrest, pain medication and the use of corsets. These treatments can reduce pain, but do not stabilize the fracture or correct the related spinal deformity. In fact, a spinal fracture can cause irreversible damage as a total or partial paralysis of the injured. ...
