Fractures and dislocations of the spine demand early and accurate diagnosis so that treatment can quickly be introduced in order to produce a painless, stable neck and prevent pressure on the spinal cord and/or nerves. When the neck is injured in very violent accidents, the bones in the neck can be broken or pulled forcefully out of normal alignment. Fractures and dislocations of the cervical spine are very serious injuries because there is the potential for damage to the spinal cord if the patient is not taken care of very carefully.

Surgical treatments for this pain commonly involve eliminating motion between affected vertebrae by initiating new bone growth, ultimately joining the two vertebrae together.read more
