What are Spinal Injuries?

Spinal cord injuries result from any damage to the spinal cord, blocking communication from the brain and the body. Spinal cord injuries often result in changes in strength, sensation, and other body functions below the site of the damage. These changes may be permanent. It is estimated that 12,500 spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. every year. Each person's path to recovery from spinal cord injury is different.

Back Problems?

Back pain refers to pain in the lower back, middle back, and upper back or low back pain with sciatica. Many people have experienced back pain at least once with symptoms ranging in intensity from mild to severe. Because the lumbar area supports most of the weight of the upper body, it is the most common area for back pain. Back pain is typically described as dull, shooting or piercing or a burning sensation. Treatments include rest, medications, physical therapy, and in some cases, spine surgery.

Conditions from Spinal Injuries or Back pain include:

  • Bulging Disc

    The Disc is bulging outside the space it usually occupies between your vertebrae.

  • Herniated Disc

    Part of the center nucleus pushes through the outer edge of the disk and back toward the spinal canal. It is a common source of back pain.

  • Pinched Nerve

    A pinched nerve occurs when there is "compression" (pressure) on a nerve.

  • Fractured Vertebrae

    The bones in your spine (vertebrae) break or collapse due to trauma or injuries from falls or car accidents.

  • Spondylolisthesis

    This is a slipping of vertebra that occurs that mainly at the base of the spine.

  • Spinal Stenos

    The small spinal canal, which contains the nerve roots and spinal cord, becomes compressed. This compression causes a “pinching” of the spinal cord and or nerve roots, which leads to pain, cramping, weakness or numbness.

  • Fractures

    Spine fractures can be severe injuries such as burst fractures and fracture-dislocations that occur following auto accidents.

Treatments For Spinal Injuries and Back Pain offered by Omni include:

  • Laminectomy

    Also known as decompression surgery, creates space by removing the lamina - a part of the vertebra that covers your spinal canal. It relieves pressure on your spinal cord or nerves.

  • Endoscopic Discectomy

    A minimally invasive procedure to remove the herniated disc material that is causing pain in the lower back.

  • ACDF

    Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) is a surgical procedure treats nerve root or spinal cord compression by decompressing the spinal cord and roots of the cervical spine.

  • Foraminectomy

    Removing large amounts of bone to relieve pressure on the nerves that are being compressed by the intervertebral foramina.

  • Microdiscectomy

    A minimally invasive techniques to provide relief from pain caused by a lumbar herniated disc.

  • XLIF

    Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (XLIF) is a minimally-invasive procedure used to treat back pain generally caused by degenerative disc disease.

  • Minimally Invasive Surgeries

    Minimally invasive spine surgeries can be used to treat herniated discs, fractures, and degenerative spine conditions.

  • TLIF

    Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) fuses the anterior and posterior columns of the spine through a posterior approach. The purpose of TLIF is to remove the pressure from the spinal cord and/or nerves, re-stabilize the spine, and prevent movement and degeneration of the joints.

  • Spinal Stenos

    The small spinal canal, which contains the nerve roots and spinal cord, becomes compressed. This compression causes a “pinching” of the spinal cord and or nerve roots, which leads to pain, cramping, weakness or numbness.

  • Rhizotomy/Facet Ablation

    A non-surgical procedure where radiofrequency waves target specific nerves to interrupt pain signals to the brain stopping chronic lower back pain.

  • Kyphoplasty/Vertebroplasty

    A minimally invasive procedures used to treat vertebral compression fractures of the spine and reduce or relieve back pain.

  • Discography

    This specialty tool is used to help determines if an abnormal disc is causing your pain. It is used in patients who are being evaluated to identify the cause of the pain to decide on a new treatment plan.

  • Spinal Fusion

    This technique is used to correct problems with vertebrae. Two or more bones are fused together to heal as a single, solid bone. Spinal Fusion is done to eliminate pain and restore stability to the spine.
