What are the symptoms of a fractured spine?
Common symptoms of a fractured spine include:
- Sudden onset back pain that worsens with movement
- Difficulty getting out of bed, standing, walking, bending, and performing everyday activities
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Numbness, tingling, and weakness in the legs
- Loss of consciousness
If you suffer from osteoporosis, multiple compression fractures can cause you to lose body height, acquire a stooped posture, and lose strength in your back.
