Spinal Nerve Roots Compressive Injury (SNRCI)
Spinal nerve injury is a general term which denotes damage to a neurological structure within the vertebral column. This can take many forms, ranging from trauma to tiny and less significant nerves to damage to vital spinal nerve roots or even the spinal cord itself. The effects of a neurological back injury may be mild or severe, temporary or permanent. Nerve involvement close to the spine is often a serious matter and appropriate treatment should always be sought out from a qualified neurologist. The scope of this article will focus on injury to the nerve roots, since these are the truest definition of spinal nerves. The nerve roots branch off the spinal cord and go on to form an incredibly complex network of neurological tissues throughout the body.
