Spinal Instability requiring Fusion with Instrumentation
Spinal instability is the excessive motion between vertebrae caused by stretched or torn ligaments and broken bone. Abnormal slipping and rubbing motions can cause pain and damage the spinal nerves or spinal cord. Stable fractures can usually be treated with bracing and rest. Unstable fractures usually require surgery to realign the bones and prevent spinal cord or nerve injury. Contact the office of Dr. Moza, a Westlake Village spine surgeon, for more information.
