Spinal Disorders: Lumbar Fractures
Fracture is a common traumatic injury, and when it occurs to the bones of the spine, it carries with it an array of other complications. Any fracture or dislocation in the vertebrae can cause irritation or damage to the nerves and the spine, and while many lumbar fractures will heal over time, some require surgery to safely realign the bones. As a patient, you want to take the right approach from the beginning.
Spinal or lumbar fractures are also a common complication of diseases like osteoporosis.
