As of today, there has been limited number of studies in terms of the demographic profile of traumatic spinal injuries in our locality and our country. The objective of this study is to determine the clinico-demographic profile of patients with traumatic spinal injury admitted in our institution for the past 10 years. A chart review of 73 patients who satisfied the inclusion criteria with traumatic spinal injuries were reviewed. Traumatic spinal injury in the locality mostly affects ages 46-60 years with a mean age of 53.5. Males were most commonly affected, married and unemployed secondary to fall and motor vehicular accidents.
