Spinal Bone Fracture Treatment In India

Spinal fractures can vary in severity, with some resulting from high-energy trauma or requiring emergency treatment, while others may occur due to lower-impact events, such as minor falls, particularly in older individuals with weakened bones due to osteoporosis. These fractures can occur in various parts of the spine, such as the mid-back (thoracic spine), lower back (lumbar spine), or at the junction of two spinal regions. The treatment approach for spinal fractures depends on the severity of the fracture and whether the patient has any accompanying injuries.

    Causes of Spinal Fracture

    Spinal fractures due to high-energy trauma can result from events like car accidents, falls from significant heights, sports-related accidents, or other violent incidents. Quick and immediate treatment may be necessary for these types of fractures. Depending on the severity of the fracture, there may also be damage to the spinal cord or nerves. Spinal fractures can also occur as a result of bone insufficiency, particularly in individuals with conditions like osteoporosis. Weakened bones can lead to fractures during low-impact events, such as bending, twisting, or falling from a standing position. These fractures may develop gradually and may not cause symptoms or discomfort until the bone breaks.

    Types of Spinal Fractures

    Doctors classify lumbar spine fractures based on specific fracture patterns and the presence of spinal cord injuries. Some significant types of spine fractures include extension rotation fractures, among others.

    Symptoms of Spinal Fracture

    Lumbar spine fractures often cause moderate to severe back pain that tends to worsen with movement. When the spinal cord is involved, the patient may experience symptoms like bladder or bowel dysfunction, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the limbs. High-energy trauma that causes spinal fractures can also lead to brain injuries, which may be accompanied by back pain.


    The treatment of lumbar spine fractures depends on the nature of the injuries and the specific fracture pattern. After stabilising any life-threatening injuries, medical professionals assess the spinal fracture to determine the need for spinal injury treatment.

    Patients with suspected spinal fractures are usually taken to the emergency room, where a thorough evaluation begins with a head-to-toe physical examination. This examination includes an assessment of the abdomen, limbs, and pelvis, as well as neurological evaluations to check for any movement limitations or sensory issues. Reflexes are also tested to assess potential spinal cord injuries.

    Treatment options vary depending on the type and severity of the injury. When seeking medical care from a specialist, patients can be assured of expert evaluation and the use of the latest medical tools and techniques for effective diagnosis and treatment.
