Lumbar Compression Fracture Symptoms – What Are They?

When a fracture of the spine bones takes place, wide-ranging symptoms present themselves. And this affects suffering people in many ways. The severity of the break determines the pressure placed on the spinal cord. Some broken bone injuries will be mildly painful, while others feel worse or even having their lives terminated.

The symptoms include:

  • Numbness: numbness might exist in the back or legs, lacking feeling being symptomatic with severe cases.
  • Weakness: if nerve damage exists, weakness or tingling in the back of your legs will occur often.
  • Pain remains a possible symptom of a fracture, usually happening in your lower back but sometimes in your upper back, neck, hips, and abdomen.
  • Paralysis: when the fracture involves the spinal cord, partial or permanent paralysis could occur.
  • Urination and Bowel Problems: lumbar compression fractures place pressure on the spinal cord. Also, it impairs a person’s ability to urinate or have bowel movements.

How Do You Get Your Fracture Diagnosis?

When trauma causes a cervical/lumbar fracture, the person could feel pain right away. To have this fracture diagnosed and treated, you need medical care. The physician will order spine testing. This trauma determines the amount of damage done to that point.

  • X-Rays: The physician will order x-rays, enabling these experts to identify your fracture’s location.
  • CT Scan: Doctors sometimes order a CAT scan, also known as a CT scan, with x-rays often proving insufficient and scans proving more intricate in helping physicians determine your fracture’s stability by providing different views.
  • MRI: if your physician suspects you sustained nerve damage, they should order an MRI, further allowing a look at your spine’s surrounding soft tissue seeking any abnormalities.

How Did My Compression Fracture Happen?

Compression fractures also naturally occur. Sometimes degenerative diseases like osteoporosis or cancer get diagnosed. These could cause vertebral compression fractures. So these illnesses weaken the bones of the spine. Trauma to the spine bones also causes fractures in healthy people. Most of all, accidents causing fractures stem from slip/falls and car accidents.

How Do You Pay for Your Back Injury Medical Treatment?

Treatments for cervical-lumbar compression fractures depend on the severity and type. Surgical and nonsurgical procedures exist. But these will depend on if the fractures stay stable or unstable. Stable fractures sometimes heal if you keep the pressure off. Usually, the patient wears a brace.

You can heal far more quickly by using a brace, rest, medications, and physical therapy to help you heal, assisting in muscle strengthening the muscles, helping heal injuries. But unstable fractures or those causing nerve or tissue damage require surgical or other treatments, including pain injections called “epidurals” prescribed by your physician.

Spinal Cord Treatments Will include:

  • Surgical Decompression: reducing pressure on the affected area is achieved by manually manipulating your bones and ligaments with excess nerve or spine pressure, indicating you must undergo critical surgical bone removal.
  • Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty: treatments remain controversial as these facture location cement injections may fail to heal despite their goal of assisting spinal stability.
  • Surgical Fusion: of the wounded patient’s vertebrae by implanting the victim’s broken bones with securing screws, rods, or hooks generally helps mend the patient’s fractured bones. Your doctor’s goal will be stabilizing your wounds, helping with your body’s healing process. Spine surgeons may prescribe other bone grafting surgical procedures, yet again, these surgeries come with severe infection risks, coupled with high failure probability problems.

Compression Fracture Prognosis – How Do You Receive One?

Many compression fractures remain capable of healing if treated. However, some treatments lead to paralysis and death. Even people helped by non-surgical treatment will need perhaps three months to heal. And folks who need surgery need several months to recover.
