Cervical Fractures are usually a result of from a traumatic injury to the cervical vertebrae made up of seven bones. These bones connect the shoulder to the body and support the head. Often referred to as a broken neck, injuries typically occur in car crashes, falls or sports such as football, ice hockey, gymnastics or diving. An injury or break of the vertebrae can damage the spinal chord causing paralysis or even death. For more information, click this link http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=A00414.
