This presentation focuses on spine injuries in baseball players—specifically cervical spine injuries. While it is true the sport of baseball results in few traumatic cervical spine injuries, certain spinal disorders and spine injuries in baseball players do result. Most of these injuries involve wear and tear, herniations, annular tears and facet disease—all of which can be related to degenerative disorders. This presentation details the treatment options for such degenerative conditions and the options baseball athletes have in order to treat the chronic back pain that accompanies cervical spine injuries.
Dr. Corenman is a Colorado spine expert and talented lecturer and researcher. He has written countless medical articles on cervical spine injuries, spine conditions and the surgical options that are available today. He recently launched his own website (http://neckandback.com) to educate patients on spine disorders and to offer second opinions to physicians and colleagues who are seeking additional information on specific spine injuries and treatment options.
