Spinal Fractures



What Is a Spinal Fracture?

Take Action

Symptoms of Spinal Fracture

The number one symptom associated with a spinal fracture is back pain. This pain can radiate out to the arms and legs as well, due to nerve pressure from the fracture point. The pain doesn’t need to be excruciating to signify a fracture. Many times, mild to moderate back pain that is associated with aging can, in reality, be due to a spinal fracture.

If you are experiencing back pain after any type of accident, fall or other trauma, seeing a specialist can be in your best interest to eliminate a spinal fracture as the cause. Our multi-disciplinary team here at NSPC in the Long Island, NY area can be your personal guide to solving your back pain problems. If you are in need of a spine specialist, we have you covered.

Additional symptoms that will help identify if your back pain is related to a spinal fracture include:

  • Sudden pain
  • Chronic pain without obvious cause
  • Altered posture
  • Becoming shorter
  • Intense back pain
  • Pain that radiates into the arms or legs

Reasons for a spinal fracture occurring can encompass osteoporosis, menopause, falling, or previous fractures. If you have any of these issues and concurrent back pain or symptoms as listed above, seeking the advice of one of our board-certified spine surgeons could greatly benefit your quality of life.
