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  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 you’re reading this page, that likely means you’ve survived a broken neck, and while you may not feel lucky right now – realizing that you’ve been given a second chance at life is a key step on road to recovery.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
Nathan

About

Breaking your neck is one of the worst injuries a human can suffer – and the time to recovery can be long and challenging.

In August, 2017, I broke my neck (4434836910e) after fainting at home while very ill with severe food poisoning (who’d of thought?).

The whole experience of breaking my neck confronting on many levels – no one ever thinks it could happen to them – and what really struck me (excuse the pun) was that there is a real lack of information online about the recovery process that is focused on the patient experience.

Most of of what’s online is written for medical practitioners and I created this website to ensure there was a place for patient-centric content to be shared.

If you’d like to be interviewed or learn more about this project, please reach out (514-455-1329). I’d love to hear from you if you have a story to contribute or if you (or someone you love) are going through the broken neck recovery process right now.
