Abstract

CCI without bony injury occurred more frequently in this study population than previously reported. Degenerative changes and spinal canal stenosis represent important risk factors for developing CCI without bony injury and the present results suggest that this injury may occur in younger adults during high-energy injuries in the absence of pre-existing cervical spine disease.
