Ligamentous Injury in Children

This page was last updated on April 8th, 2024

  • More common in children: Ligamentous injury without bony abnormality occurs more frequently in children, particularly in the preadolescent age group.
  • Suggested by facet disruption, change in disk or interspinous space: Occasionally a ligamentous injury may be diagnosed or suspected based on facet disruption, disk space changes, or widening of the interspinous space.
  • MRI or flexion/extension x-rays: A ligamentous injury usually requires MRI or flexion/extension films for diagnosis.
