What are Spinal Injuries?
Spinal cord injuries result from any damage to the spinal cord, blocking communication between 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 a spinal cord injury is different.
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:
The Disc is bulging outside the space it usually occupies between your vertebrae.
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.
A pinched nerve occurs when there is “compression” (pressure) on a nerve.
The bones in your spine (vertebrae) break or collapse due to trauma or injuries from falls or car accidents.
This is a slipping of vertebrae that occurs mainly at the base of the spine.
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.
Treatments For Spinal Injuries and Back Pain offered by Omni include:
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.
A minimally invasive procedure to remove the herniated disc material that is causing pain in the lower back.
Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) is a surgical procedure that treats nerve root or spinal cord compression by decompressing the spinal cord and roots of the cervical spine.
A minimally invasive procedure used to treat vertebral compression fractures of the spine and reduce or relieve back pain.
Total Disc Replacement
TDR is a minimally invasive spinal surgery used to treat damaged and degenerated spinal discs. During the procedure, the degenerated disc is removed and replaced with an artificial disc. Age, genetics, traumatic accidents and normal wear and tear can all lead to disc degeneration that requires surgical repair.
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.
