Abstract

Cervical spine injuries are frequently encountered in any practice treating patients in the emergency department or outpatient trauma victims. When upper or lower cervical spine injuries are suspected, immediate immobilization, physical and neurologic examination, and radiographic evaluation are imperative. For spinal cord injuries, knowledge of microscopic and cellular pathology helps to determine appropriate management.
