    Spine is a vital part of your body which supports majority of your body weight and enables you to gain control over your sensation and movements. Spinal disorders are extremely common- it ranges from infants to the elderly; so also spinal trauma .Spinal health has gigantic impact on life. Spina bifida occurs in seven of out every 10,000 live births in the United States. The average total lifetime cost to society for each infant born with spina bifida is approximately $532,000 per child. This estimate is only an average and for many children the total cost may be well above $1 million. Estimated annual medical care and surgical costs for persons with spina bifida in the United States exceed $200 million. Sciatica is a relatively common problem. About 90% of the time sciatica is due to a spinal disc herniation pressing on one of the lumbar or sacral nerve roots. Spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, piriformis syndrome, pelvic tumors, and compression by a baby's head during pregnancy may also contribute to sciatica. Scoliosis is a multifactorial disorder, which requires multidisciplinary research and treatment; affecting 2-3% of the population and there is no cure. Scoliosis impacts infants, adolescents, and adults worldwide, the primary age of onset being 10-15 years old. Kyphosis is often related to osteoporosis but in children it can be due to injury, a tumor on the spine, or a genetic disorder, such as spina bifida. Osteoporosis is the most common cause of fractures. Worldwide, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, resulting in an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds. The risk of a fracture increases with age and is greatest in women.

    Spain, the 6th largest country in Europe with a population of 46.77 million, stands third in the list of highest incidence of spine injury cases in Europe with 23.5 injuries per million per year. Most recent estimates from Europe indicate motor vehicle crashes to be the leading cause of SCIs in regions of Spain followed by falls (24.6%).Most motor vehicle crashes leads to whiplash injury which later results in cervicalgia. More than 1,500 whiplash claims are made in the UK every day. More than 50% of whiplash cases resolve after a few weeks of treatment. However, approximately 30% of cases become chronic and persist for months or years.

    Globally every year between 250,000 and 500,000 people suffer spinal cord injury. In Europe around 333,000 are currently affected. Spain has around 100 universities and 200 hospitals working in the field Spine and Spinal disorders. There are around 20 associations and many rehabilitation agencies operating for Spinal care. The market for spinal surgery devices is being driven forward, as patients are offered safer, more reliable surgery. The global spinal surgery devices market is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4% from $6.5 billion in 2011 to $8.7 billion in 2018. Spinal fusions increased 77 % from 2002 to 2011, and the demand will continue to grow as the indications for fusion expand. The European minimally invasive surgery spinal implant market is expected to exceed 92 million by 2018.
