Some spine injuries are caused by trauma, while others are caused by internally degenerative conditions that accompany age or some disease processes. They can include but are not limited to spinal stenosis, herniated disks (also known as herniated discs), thinning or degenerative disks, pinched nerves, bone spurs, sciatica and spinal arthritis.
