A spinal fracture is a painful condition that afflicts millions of individuals worldwide. Vitruvian Health knows that Spinal fractures are serious injuries that can occur due to falls, accidents, sports injuries, or another high-velocity impact on the back. If left untreated, spinal fractures can lead to permanent spinal cord injury, nerve damage, and paralysis.
According to experts, Spinal fractures are often overlooked or misdiagnosed, leading to a delay in treatment that can result in further complications. We have found that early diagnosis and treatment is crucial to successful outcomes for patients with spinal fractures.
Symptoms of spinal fractures can include back pain, tingling sensation or numbness, weakness in the legs or feet, loss of bladder/bowel control, and difficulty standing, walking, or sitting. Patients experiencing any of these symptoms are encouraged to seek medical attention immediately. According to experts, spinal fractures can have a devastating impact on a person's quality of life.
It's essential to raise awareness about spinal fractures and encourage the public to seek early medical attention if symptoms arise, such as campaigns to educate the public on the importance of spinal health and early diagnosis and treatment of spinal fractures.
