Relationship Of Fractures With An Abnormal Sitting Position?
I had a motorcycle accident and suffered a broken spine … What I’m asking is, are people used to having a broken spine that can’t sit normally? I sit, what should I stand on? And if it’s not like that, I’m like a tree that can’t be held back like my muscles don’t function … Is that normal for having a broken spine? Tu want me to ask? Is it normal and can heal?

The spine is a supporting organ of the body consisting of bones, joints, nerves, blood vessels and muscles. At the time of spinal trauma occurs, then this condition can be at risk of causing the spine to break with all its implications, especially spinal cord injury or injury to the spinal nerve.
In patients with vertebral fractures, some of the complaints that often accompany can be:
1. pain in the spinal region
2. tingling or thick taste in certain body parts
3. muscle weakness or muscle weakness
4. disruption of urinary habits that can not control urine
5. paralysis, where this condition indicates the risk of injury to the spinal nerves that control the nerve function underneath
6. The spine cannot support the body
To find out the implications of trauma to the spine and diagnosis of vertebral fractures and their complications, a direct consultation with a neurosurgeon and / or a bone specialist is needed so that the doctor can make a diagnosis. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations and necessary investigations, such as radiological examinations. The results of the examination will assist the doctor in establishing the diagnosis and knowing the medical complications that may occur. Thus, doctors can provide care, appropriate medical treatment for patients.
In connection with your question, a complaint where you have difficulty sitting, may be an implication of a fracture of the spine, so that the spine cannot sustain the body optimally when you sit or change position. Spinal instability and / or injury to the spinal nerves can trigger this complaint. However, all of this needs to be ascertained directly by your orthopedic doctor for more precise information, because your orthopedic doctor better understands the condition of vertebral fractures that you experience. Thus, doctors can provide education and advice for home care and follow-up steps that can be given.
For now, you can still use tools to make changes to position, so there is no risk of further injuring your spine. Follow your doctor's advice for advanced treatment steps and home care steps.
