Cervical fracture treatment
The London Spine Unit specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Cervical fracture. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Cervical fracture. The best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Cervical fracture.
If you have been diagnosed with Cervical fracture then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Cervical fracture can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.

More details about Cervical fracture
A cervical fracture, commonly called a broken neck, is a catastrophic fracture of any of the seven cervical vertebrae in the neck. Examples of common causes in humans are traffic collisions and diving into shallow water. Abnormal movement of neck bones or pieces of bone can cause a spinal cord injury resulting in loss of sensation, paralysis, or usually instant death.
Considerable force is needed to cause a cervical fracture. Vehicle collisions and falls are common causes. A severe, sudden twist to the neck or a severe blow to the head or neck area can cause a cervical fracture.
