Cervical spine issues can be generally divided into acute and progressive chronic conditions. Injuries to the cervical spine can result from trauma as simple as a minor fall or as major as a car accident.
Acute Cervical spine injuries are not limited to but can include:
- Neck and arm pain
- Sensory loss
- Radiating pain
- Motor weakness
Treating Spinal Trauma
Diagnosing the type of injury will require full medical history, a physical, and investigation to determine what treatment if any is necessary or if your body will heal naturally with time.
