Degenerative spinal pathology has a high incidence throughout the world. It’s very important identifying the incidence and prevalence of degenerative spinal pathologies. Demographic factors are relevant to understanding the risk, preventive measures to implement, treatment and outcome of spinal injuries. It is equally important to differentiate acute lesions from chronic degenerative pathologies.
