 +=====Spine instability=====
 +An unstable [[spine]] is a common spinal condition which can be caused by a number of factors including trauma and degenerative spine disease. 
 +After White and Panjabi's original definition of [[instability]], and many classification schemes later, there remains no practical and meaningful definition for spinal instability in thoracolumbar trauma. Surgeon expertise and experience remains an important factor in stability determination. 
 +Abbasi Fard et al. propose that, at an initial assessment, a distinction should be made between immediate and delayed instability. This designation should better guide surgeons in decision making and patient counseling
