Back injuries often involve a low back (lumbar) herniated disc (in which the nucleus of the disc protrudes through the outer fibrous layer or annulus of the disc), a fractured vertebra, torn posterior longitudinal ligament, torn anterior longitudinal ligament, or injury to the facet joints, all parts of the vertebral column. When the structure of the spinal column is altered by an injury, it often results in serious and debilitating pain.
