Treating Traumatic Spine Injuries

The Interventional Spine & Surgery Group brings together a team of experts in orthopedics, neurosurgery, neurology, physiatry, and pain management to provide the best treatment for traumatic spine injuries in New Jersey. 

Injuries to the spine can range from mild strains like whiplash to debilitating spinal cord injuries. Traumatic spine injuries we treat include:

  • Compression fracture
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Spinal fracture

Trauma to the spine is often caused by a sudden blow or injury to the vertebrae in the spine, such as a car accident, fall, or sports injury. Traumatic spine injuries can occur anywhere along the spine, including the neck or cervical spine, the upper back or thoracic spine, the lower back or the lumbar spine, and the very bottom of the spinal canal called the sacrum. 

The best treatment for a traumatic spine injury depends on the type of injury and the degree of instability the spine has suffered. For example, many spinal fractures heal with conservative treatment, but the severe cases of traumatic spine injury may require surgery to realign the bones. Our surgical team is the best at treating traumatic spine injuries, stabilizing the spine to avoid further damage to start. A spine surgeon or neurosurgeon will decide on the best procedure to stabilize any fractured vertebrae, release pressure on the spine, and treat other injuries in the body.
