Fractured Vertebrae Treatment
"I was in a car accident - what is the best treatment options for fractured vertebrae?"
The majority of fractures heal with:
- Pain medication
- Reduction in activity (rest)
- Back brace
- Physical therapy
Some people with fractured vertebras may need further treatment, such as surgery. Common surgeries that doctors perform are a vertebroplasty, a kyphoplasty, or a spinal fusion. We have seen clients come to us with fractured, cracked, dislocated vertebrae from a serious car, truck, or motorcycle accident. We obviously advise them legally regarding their accident claim, but we also make sure that they seek professional medical attention. Different doctors recommend different procedures. Kalka & Baer LLC recommends finding a back specialist doctor who will be cautious yet thorough…and a doctor who you trust and feel comfortable with. If you have a back injury due to a car, truck, or motorcycle accident and would like legal advice, contact Kalka & Baer LLC today.
