HealthInsights: Spinal Injury and Surgery (January 2011)

If you've every thrown your back out, you know the excruciating pain that follows. Back injuries result from damage, wear, or trauma to the bones, muscles, or other tissues of the back. And finding the problem, getting to the solution, can often mean weeks and months.

Back injuries are the most common reason for absenteeism in the general workforce after the common cold. About 80 percent of adults are estimated to experience a back injury in their lifetime.

That's why Saint Vincent Health Center has partnered with TriState Neurological Surgeons to develop a comprehensive program to addresse many injuries of the back. This month on Saint Vincent Health Insights, we'll show you many of the injuries and procedures available.
