Vertebral Body Injuries

Thems the Breaks

Watch your back…

Tony Romo recently broke two transverse processes in his spine, from a knee in the back, which didn’t allow him to start today. The soccer player from Brazil – Neymar- broke a spinous process. see picture for difference.
Why is this important? Well you don’t want to break a bone in sports ever and because ligaments and muscles attach to these bones. But most importantly because it hurts! And that’s why Romo is not playing.

Update: Tony Romo is playing after a brief one game off. Recently Cam Newton broke the same bone in a car wreck in Charlotte, NC.
