Cervical Fracture FAQs

Toronto cervical fractureWhat is a cervical fracture?

A cervical fracture is a break of a bone in your neck. The bones in your neck and spine are called vertebrae and the vertebrae in your neck are referred to as your C-spine (or cervical spine). There are 7 cervical vertebrae and they’re numbered C-1 to C-7.   Your vertebrae have a hollow centre and your spinal cord runs up through the middle of the vertebrae.

What causes a cervical fracture?

The most common causes of cervical fractures are car accidents, slip and falls, violence, and sports activities. The abrupt impact and/or twisting of the neck that occurs during trauma can cause the C-spine bones to crack.  

Is there treatment available?

Treatment for a cervical fracture depends on the severity of the break and whether the spinal cord is affected.  In some situations, a neck brace, rest, and pain management will be enough.  In more serious situations, surgery may be required, especially if the bones have moved.  Following surgery, a heavier brace such as a halo brace may be used, as well as rest and pain management.
