Vertebrae are the bones in your spine that are fused by articulations. They not only protect your spinal cord but also facilitate axial loading and support the limbs. Vertebral fractures occur because of wrong axial loading and dislocations due to trauma, falls, bone diseases, infection, or metastasis.


Spinal hematoma is a condition in which blood accumulates, which compresses the nerve roots present near the spine or sometimes the spinal cord. It is a matter of concern when blood collects anywhere in the body. But it is even more problematic when it collects near the spine.

A vast majority of the nerves in our body pass through the long spinal cord to reach several parts of the body. One such nerve is the sciatic nerve. When the sciatic nerve exits the spinal cord, it supplies the hip joints and the legs. This nerve ends at the toes. Due to its long path, the chances of damage increase proportionally, leading to a condition called sciatica. At the same, since the path is long, in case of damage, the entire leg might be affected. Read on to learn more about the causes and symptoms of sciatica, and its treatment and risk factors.

A spinal tumor is the unusual growth of cells inside or around the spinal column. This mass of cells usually grows and divides without any control as it is not checked by the mechanisms responsible for controlling normal cells.


Kyphosis is a kind of spinal condition where there is excessive curvature of the upper back in the forward direction. Because of this, the upper back looks hunched or slouched. The spinal cord has natural curves that provide support to postures and helps in standing straight.


Scoliosis is an unusual curvature of the spine. Usually, a spine is curved in the top and the lower back, but when it is curved towards one side, it is scoliosis. People suffering from conditions like cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy can get scoliosis, but in most cases, the cause is unknown.
