Abstract [en]

Background: Severe injuries in martial arts are rare and only few spinal injuries have been reported so far.

Objective: To sensitise for cervical spine instability even after low impact sports trauma.

Case: A 27-years old male athlete tried to escape a headlock during a jujitsu fight and reported acute neck pain. Neurologically the patient remained intact. Conventional X-ray, CT and MRI revealed discoligamental instability at C6/7. Thus an anterior fusion at C6/7 was performed with excellent 2-years follow-up result.

Conclusions: Only relatively little force is needed to disrupt cervical spinal ligaments if torsion is involved. Sports physicians need to recognise the discipline-related injury-patterns and martial arts-schools should re-evaluate their rules of safety concerning cervical spine-injuries.
