Fractures of the spine do not only occur in bones weakened by osteoporosis. Major trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident, a gunshot wound or a fall can result in major thoracolumbar injury. In many such instances, surgery will be needed to repair the damage, but leading up to and following surgery, a stabilizing and immobilizing spine brace for fractures will be needed.

Symptoms of a spinal fracture:

  • Sudden and severe back pain
  • Pain increases when walking or standing and twisting or bending
  • Deformity of the spine
  • Loss of height 

Anti-inflammatory medications may be used to help ease your pain if you have a spinal fracture. In addition, physical therapy is also an option to help strengthen your back and spine. To help prevent these spinal fractures, eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D.
