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 have their lives terminated.
The symptoms include:
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.
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.
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:
Many compression fractures remain capable of healing if treated. However, some treatments lead to paralysis and death. Even people helped by nonsurgical treatment will need perhaps three months to heal. And folks who need surgery need several months to recover.
