What is Post Traumatic Spinal Pain?

Post traumatic spinal pain is a condition that affects the spine after an injury or trauma. The pain can be constant or intermittent and can be located at the site of the original injury, in other areas along the spine, or both.

The spine can be injured in many ways: car accidents, falls, sports injuries, or even just from everyday wear and tear. It’s important to remember that the damage caused by these injuries can sometimes be very serious—even if you don’t feel any pain at first.

What are the types of Post Traumatic Spinal Pain?

There are three common types of post traumatic spinal pain:

Acute

This is the most common type of post traumatic spinal pain and lasts for up to 12 weeks. It is characterized by a sharp, stabbing pain in the back that can be relieved by rest, but is otherwise constant.

Subacute

Subacute post traumatic spinal pain lasts from two to four months after the initial injury. The pain becomes less intense but also more intermittent, coming and going in waves or episodes throughout the day.

Chronic

Chronic post traumatic spinal pain lasts for more than four months after the initial injury. This type of pain may appear similar to subacute post traumatic spinal pain, but it will gradually worsen over time instead of improving or becoming episodic like subacute post traumatic spinal pain tends to do as it progresses toward chronicity.

How to diagnose Post Traumatic Spinal Pain?

Post Traumatic Spinal Pain is a common condition that affects many people, and it can be very difficult to diagnose. Your doctor will consider the following factors when diagnosing PTSDP:

  • The duration of your symptoms
  • Your past medical history, including previous injuries
  • The location of your pain
  • Whether you have numbness or tingling in your legs or arms
  • Whether there are any other symptoms besides pain, such as weakness or dizziness

What are the symptoms of Post Traumatic Spinal Pain?

Post Traumatic Spinal Pain is a very common condition that can develop after a spinal injury, such as a car accident or fall.

The symptoms of Post Traumatic Spinal Pain include:

  • Pain in the back, neck and shoulders
  • Muscle spasms in the back, neck and shoulders
  • A feeling of weakness in the arms and legs

What are the causes of Post Traumatic Spinal Pain?

There are many causes of post-traumatic spinal pain. The most common is an injury to the spine. In addition to injuries that cause direct damage to the spine, other causes include:

Tumors

Tumors can grow in the spine and cause inflammation, which can lead to irritation and discomfort.

Inflammatory diseases

Inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis also cause inflammation and pain in the spine.

Spondylolisthesis

This condition occurs when one vertebra slides forward over another. It can cause pressure on nerves in the spine, which often leads to pain and discomfort.

How to prevent Post Traumatic Spinal Pain?

It is not uncommon for people to experience pain after a car accident or other traumatic event.

This pain can be even more intense if you have back problems or a history of spinal trauma, which makes it even more important to know how to prevent post-traumatic spinal pain.

Here are some things you can do:

  • Get plenty of rest, but avoid sleep on your back for at least the first few days after an accident.
  • Avoid any activity that causes pain and discomfort.
  • Do not lift anything heavier than 10 pounds until your doctor gives you permission!
  • If you follow these guidelines, you should be able to recover from post-traumatic spinal pain quickly and easily!

What are the exercises for Spinal Instability?

If you’re dealing with spinal instability, it can be hard to know what to do. Luckily, there are a few exercises that can help you rebuild your strength and flexibility.

Hamstring Stretch

The hamstrings are the muscles in the back of your thighs, and they control the straightening of your hips. This exercise helps strengthen your hamstrings so that they work properly and protect your spine from further damage.

Pelvic Tilt

This exercise is similar to our hamstring stretch, but instead of extending your leg back and forth across the floor, you’ll lift it up in front of you and hold it there for 30 seconds. This will help strengthen your pelvic muscles, which are responsible for supporting your spine.

Arm/Leg Raises

This exercise helps strengthen the muscles on both sides of your body at once—and it’s super easy! Just lie on the floor with one arm and one leg extended in opposite directions (think “T”), then raise them up together as high as possible before lowering them again. Repeat this exercise 10 times per set with each limb before switching sides for another set of 10 lifts per side.

What are the treatments for Spinal Instability?

Treatments for spinal instability can vary depending on the cause and severity of the condition. Common treatments include:

  • Medications to reduce inflammation, pain, and swelling
  • Physical therapy to help with posture and strength training
  • Surgery to fix a torn ligament or fuse vertebrae together

What brace is used for Spinal Instability?

There are several types of braces available to help manage spinal instability, including Lumbar Support and Lumbar Sacral Orthosis (LSO).

The LSO is designed to support the spine from the sacrum to the lumbar region, providing compression and stabilization. It’s generally used by people who have sustained injuries that have caused their vertebrae to shift out of place and require immediate support.
