SPINAL FRACTURE PAIN DOCTORS

Our pain care doctors at Spine and Wellness Centers of America use evidence-based treatments backed by science to treat acute and chronic spinal fracture pain.  Spinal fractures are very common in all ages. The most common cause of a spine fracture is a result of a sudden stop and fall. These types of accidents can cause a lot of damage to the back that can lead to a spine fracture. This is why it is so important to learn how to prevent falls.  Spinal fractures can also be caused by lifting objects incorrectly. For example, lifting an object with an incorrect angle can cause a spinal fracture. As the weight of the object presses on the vertebrae, they can tear. Although this type of injury can be prevented with proper lifting techniques, it is important to be aware of what are spinal fractures. In the end, knowing what spinal fractures are will help you learn what steps to take when suffering from a spinal fracture. Fractures of the spine are very serious, and they need to be treated promptly. If you are experiencing pain, you should book an appointment with one of our spine doctors at Spine and Wellness Centers of America.

What causes a spinal fracture?

A fracture of the spine can happen at any age and can result from a wide variety of activities. The trauma, sports injuries, or car accidents can cause a fracture. There are a few common causes for this kind of injury, so it's important to ask about them.People who have spinal injuries can still function at home with the help of a special chair that supports their back. You will need to be careful that you don't put undue pressure on your back, because it could become damaged. It can also be uncomfortable to sit in a position that does not support your back properly.  Did you know a fractured spine may also be caused by an accident that occurred during childhood? A child's bones grow at different rates than adults. If the bones in their spine do not fully form, they can develop into cracks. Once these cracks become larger, they can cause a spinal fracture. Because of this, parents need to pay close attention to the injuries that their children are suffering from.  Many people report having difficulty getting up after an accident, even though they feel fine. This is because they have not completely healed. It's also possible that the bones have already begun to shift. When this happens, the bones can move towards each other, which could lead to a fracture.

Signs of Spinal Injury

Some fractured spine symptoms are similar to the signs of spinal injury. These symptoms are associated with damage to the soft tissues of the spine. They also may include issues such as back pain, numbness, weakness, and loss of sensation. These conditions do not necessarily mean that the problem is severe, but you need to go in for an examination so that your physician can determine the seriousness of the situation.You will be treated for spine problems when you have had an episode. If you are experiencing several episodes of back pain, numbness, weakness or swelling, or numbness of the hands or legs, you need to seek medical attention to get the spinal treatment and pain care you need.  Although a spine fracture is usually minor, it is still a very serious medical condition. When you don't fully heal from a fracture, it may lead to permanent damage to your spine. This could affect the blood supply to the spine and can make it more difficult to heal.  Spinal fractures are often painful but often can get better on their own. However, in severe cases, surgery may be necessary. If you have a fractured spine, you will need to take time to rest so that the bones can heal.

Our dedicated team of award-winning bursitis pain relief doctors with backgrounds in orthopedics, neurosurgery, pain care, and rehabilitation will create a long term treatment plan individualized to you, your unique pain and your goals.  We conquer pain without surgical interventions in most cases using cutting edge pain relief techniques for spinal fracture pain care (some of which are completely new to pain management and only offered by our pain care doctors).

The doctors and nurses at Spine and Wellness Centers of America spend a great deal of time with our patients.  We listen to symptoms and then construct a detailed pain relief treatment plan.  We will determine if your pain is coming from one or more sources, something that other doctors might not even consider when treating your symptoms.  

We believe that no one should have to live a life of pain. If you are worried that you may have a spinal fracture, it is important to seek help fast so we can take care of it before it gets worse.  Spinal Fracture pain can be treated in just one visit in most cases.  Our goal is to target the source of your individual pain with the most advanced pinpointed pain treatment for your condition.  Not everyone's spinal fracture will be treated the same.  Patients suffering from acute spinal fracture pain may be prescribed pain relief from in-office steroid injections, soft tissue injections, or trigger point injections.  Often anti-inflammatories are prescribed in conjunction with other acute pain treatments and the condition resolves.  In other patients, acute pain is a precursor to a life of chronic pain, so it is important to determine the cause of pain and administer the correct pain relief procedure for lasting relief of spine pain.
