The two types of back injury

- Spondylolisthesis occurs when a vertebra slips, commonly at the base of the spine. These injuries can cause pain anywhere from the lower back to the legs, as well as muscle weakness.
- Cervical Radiculopathy involves nerve function damage or disturbance near the cervical vertebrae. In addition to pain in the arm, neck, chest or shoulders, victims can suffer symptoms including muscle weakness, tingling and a lack of coordination.
Although both types of back injury can cause significant pain to victims over an extended time period, treatment typically involves the use of pain medications combined with physical therapy.
