Radiological features of post-traumatic disc herniation are similar to those of non-traumatic. The mechanism of sciora neural injury probably relates to the inherent elasticity of the sciwora spine, which permits self-reducing but sciwora intersegmental displacements when subjected to sciworx, extension, and sciwora forces.
