Spinal fractures are when the vertebrae, or bones enclosing the spinal cord and nerve roots, break or dislocate. Spinal fractures differ from broken arms or legs because the fracture can cause pinching, compression or damage to the spinal cord.
Most spinal fractures occur from car accidents, falls, gunshots or sports. A fracture in the spine is always a serious condition and may lead to severe pain or debilitating spinal cord damage.

If you have a spinal cord fracture, you’ll likely experience severe pain in the region of the fracture. You may experience other symptoms too, including:
- Severe back or neck pain
- Numbness, tingling or weakness
- Muscle spasms
- Bowel/bladder changes
Spinal fractures may require surgery to realign the vertebrae for a full recovery. If you’re experiencing severe back and neck pain, schedule an appointment with a neurosurgeon to get an accurate diagnosis and explore treatment options.
