Restore Optimal Spinal Health

Spinal fractures are debilitating injuries that can happen to anyone at any age. While the most common cause of a spinal fracture is osteoporosis, it can also be caused by traumatic events such as a car accident or a fall. A spinal fracture can cause severe pain and disability, and it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Instead of suffering in silence, we encourage you to contact Dr. Rozenberg to explore your treatment options. We only offer non-surgical, non-opioid treatments, which means you don’t have to worry about surgery or rely on pain medications to get through the day.

What are Spinal Fractures?

A spinal fracture is a break in one or more of the bones in your spine (backbone). A fracture can be caused by something as simple as a fall or more serious trauma, such as a car accident. Symptoms of a spinal fracture include pain, numbness, and weakness. If the spinal cord is damaged, paralysis can occur. A spinal fracture is a serious injury that requires prompt medical attention. If you think you may have a spinal fracture, contact us without delay.

What are the Symptoms of Spinal Fractures?

There are many different symptoms of spinal fractures, and the severity of the symptoms will depend on the location and type of fracture. Common symptoms include:

  • Back pain that gets worse with activity or movement
  • Loss of mobility in the affected area
  • Muscle weakness
  • Loss of height
  • Kyphosis (a hunched-over posture)
  • Stiffness and decreased range of motion in the back
  • Numbness, weakness, or tingling in the legs
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Inability to stand or walk

Common Causes of Spinal Fractures

There are many possible causes of spinal fractures, including:

  • Trauma: A fall, car accident, or other types of trauma can cause a spinal fracture.
  • Osteoporosis: This condition causes bones to become weak and fragile. People with osteoporosis are at increased risk of spinal fractures.
  • Tumors: Cancerous or benign tumors can weaken the bones and lead to fractures.
  • Infections: Infections of the spine can cause the bones to weaken and break.

How Can Spinal Fractures Be Treated?

Spinatomy Spine & Disc Centers offers highly personalized treatments after a thorough evaluation. Our medical providers discuss your symptoms, assess the location of the injury, determine the root cause, and curate a personalized treatment plan consisting of non-surgical and non-opioid modalities, such as spinal decompression, laser therapy, and cryotherapy.

Spinal Decompression

Traction is a nonsurgical treatment option for some types of spinal fractures. Traction works by gently pulling on the spine in a controlled manner. You will be placed on a special table, and straps will be used to attach you to the equipment. The amount of force used will be gradually increased over time.

You may feel some pulling and stretching, but it should not be painful. This action decompresses the spine and takes the pressure off the spinal cord and nerves. Traction can be used to treat compression fractures, burst fractures, and stable fractures.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a non-surgical treatment for spinal fractures that facilitates natural cellular regeneration. During laser therapy, concentrated beams of light energy are channeled into the injured tissues. Light energy stimulates the cells in the ligaments, tendons, muscles, and other targeted tissues, encouraging your body to speed up the healing process. Your body has an innate healing capability, but laser therapy simply catalyzes the process. Over time, laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and heal your body from within.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves the insertion of thin needles into the skin at specific points on the body. These points are known as acupuncture points or acupoints. Studies show that acupuncture helps to improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, and promote healing in the bones and surrounding tissues of the spine. Acupuncture also releases natural pain-relieving chemicals, such as endorphins, leading to pain relief. Acupuncture can also improve function in patients with osteoporosis-related fractures.

Cryotherapy

In recent years, cryotherapy has become a popular treatment for various medical conditions, including spinal fractures. Cryotherapy involves exposing the body to extremely cold temperatures for a short period. It can provide numerous benefits, including reducing inflammation and pain and promoting healing.

Electroanalgesic Pain Management

Electroanalgesic pain management is a safe and effective way to treat pain associated with spinal fractures. This type of pain management uses electrical stimulation to block pain signals from the spinal cord to the brain. This allows the patient to receive the pain relief they need without using pain medication.
