Spinal fractures are very much different from a broken leg or arm. A fracture or dislocation of a vertebra may cause bone fragments to pinch and damage the spinal cord or spinal nerves. The majority of spinal fractures occur from accidents, gunshots, falls, or sports injuries. Spinal Injuries can range from relatively muscle strains and mild ligament, to dislocations and fractures of the bony vertebrae, to debilitating spinal cord damage. Depending on how severe an injury is, the patient may experience pain, difficulty in walking, or be unable to move arms or legs i.e. paralysis.
Spinal Fracture is an emergency that needs expert management and Paralysis is a dreaded complication of the injury. When it comes to the care of spinal injured persons it requires a full spectrum of physiotherapists, psychologist, occupational therapist, social workers and vocational counselors in order to ensure and optimize recovery.
