There are four common types of spine injuries incurred while playing sports. The neck “burners” or “stingers” are a kind of injury that is due to an impact to the head in which it moves to one side while the shoulder moves in other direction. This causes the nerves in the neck to get stretched or compressed beyond their usual capacity. The result is a radiating pain through an arm, which feels like an electric shock and lasts for seconds or minutes.

A second common type of spinal injury is the vertebral stress fracture, which is a tiny crack in the vertebrae caused by excessive stress. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and bruising. This kind of injury must be assessed by a spinal specialist because if it is left untreated, it can get worse.

The herniated disc is the third common type of spinal injury that is sports-related. The twisting and turning moves that often occur in different kinds of sports can cause the discs, or soft cushions between the vertebrae, to become damaged. Excess movement and pressure can lead to a herniated disc, which causes several symptoms, such as pain, numbness, weakness, and radiating pain.

The fourth common type of sports-related spinal injury is the fracture, which means that a vertebral bone has been broken. This may be caused by a severe fall or anything that has a severe impact on the spine. This is a serious condition and has to be treated immediately to prevent the nerves in the spinal cord from getting damaged. The symptoms of a fracture include severe pain, numbness, weakness, tingling, paralysis of the arms and legs, and limited motion and sensation below the point of impact.

Dr. Rovner has the technical skill and expertise to perform various kinds of spinal surgeries. One of these is lumbar spinal fusion for the treatment of lower back pain caused by a fracture, spinal stenosis, or a degenerative disc disease. He can also perform robotic spine surgery, which is a less invasive, safer, and more accurate alternative to open back surgery. He employs the Mazor Robotics System to enhance accuracy and minimize risks in various spinal surgeries, such as vertebroplasty, spinal fusion, and adult reconstructive surgeries.
