Vertebral injuries may be

  • Fractures, which may involve the vertebral body, lamina, and pedicles as well as the spinous, articular, and transverse processes
  • Dislocations, which typically involve the facets
  • Subluxations, which may involve ligament rupture without bony injury

In the neck, fractures of the posterior elements and dislocations can damage the vertebral arteries, causing a syndrome resembling a brain stem stroke.
