Spinal injuries can range from mild ligament, muscle strains to fractures and dislocations of the bony vertebrae. You may experience pain, difficulty in walking, or unable to move your arms or legs depending on the severity of the injury. Many small fractures heal with conservative treatment.

A spinal tumor is abnormal growth of the cell in the spinal column of an individual. It is of two types: primary and secondary. The primary tumor originates in the spine itself but is very rare occurring. The secondary tumor originates elsewhere and spreads to the spinal column. The primary tumor is benign (non-cancerous) in nature and the secondary tumors are malignant (cancerous). The Usual symptom of spinal tumor is severe back pain that is unrelated to movement. In addition to this, the back pain cannot be improved with rest or physical rehabilitation. The other symptoms include sciatica, numbness, and partial paralysis. The basis of treatment depends on the degree of severity and location of the tumor in the spinal column.
