Did you know that you may have a fractured Vertebra and not even know it?
For most people who have a vertebra fracture, pain is a part of their everyday life. They wake up thinking about it, and they go to sleep thinking about it. However, this is not always the case when dealing with fractures. It is possible to have fractured vertebra and not feel pain due to the fact that the fracture or pressure from the fracture is not interfering with nerve signals in the back.
While most vertebra fractures tend to occur in the elderly, it can also affect people in any age group. Also, women more than men, tend to experience fractured vertebras more often. This is especially due to post menopause when the body goes through many hormonal changes. Vertebra Fractures not only cause physical pain but can cause emotional pain as well. Any type of pain, especially chronic pain can take a toll on one’s spirits.
Since vertebra fractures can range from mild to severe, it’s important to gather as much information as you can from reputable sources in order to make an informed decision on how you should treat the problem.
