Spine fractures

Health Topic

  • A spinal fracture is a serious injury in which one or more vertebra in the spinal column collapses, causing the vertebra to become compressed.
  • It is typically caused by high-impact trauma, such as a car accident or long-distance fall, but can also be caused by osteoporosis in older individuals with weakened bones.

  • When the spinal cord is also involved, numbness, tingling, weakness, or bowel/bladder dysfunction may occur
                                         Treatment
  • Bed rest, analgesics
  • Surgery
  • Minimally invasive pedicle screw fixation
  • Decompression and fixation
