Spine injuries account for only 5%–15% of all sport-related traumata, but they represent a high proportion of the most devastating injuries in sports medicine. An increased number of severe spine injuries with permanent neurological damage have been reported in a wide variety of sports activities including automobile and motorcycle racing, diving, parachuting, trampolining, gymnastics, and horse riding.
