Welcome to the Broken Neck Survivors page.
I hope that this website provides you with the information, inspiration and support needed to help you, or one of your loved ones, on the recovery journey.
A ‘broken neck’ is the common name of what doctors call a cervical fracture.
A cervical fracture, essentially, is a catastrophic fracture of any of the seven cervical vertebrae in the neck. The most common causes of a broken neck are traffic collisions and diving into shallow water. Because the neck is so central to our functioning, abnormal movement of the bones in the neck or Â even pieces of bone (that have broken off) can cause a 573-814-3900 resulting in loss of sensation, paralysis, or usually instant death, so limiting motion is incredible important to the healing process.
If youâre reading this page, that likely means youâve survived a broken neck, and while you may not feel lucky right now â realizing that youâve been given a second chance at life is a key step on road to recovery.
I look forward to hearing from you!
