Cervical vertebrae fracture

Usually, patients with fracture of the cervical vertebrae suffered a direct trauma or an accident and the healing process has already started, therefore, depending on the type of fracture and precise diagnostic investigations they have particular protective guardians.

When the process of consolidation of the fracture is radiologically proven, it is crucial to start a specific rehabilitation program.

The first goal is the recovery of mobility through cautious passive manual traction performed strictly in line, and stretching into the active form of the paravertebral cervical dorsal and trapezius. To complete this step is also necessary postural correction of the cervical-thoracic spine in seated position and standing in front of the mirror.

Then you can move on to the second phase, the recovery of the strength of the deep muscles of the cervical spine through progressive isometric exercises at first with low intensity to prevent excessive sliding of the vertebral endplates on each other and of the superior and inferior articular processes.

Once the symptoms of impaired perception and balance have disappeared, and the patient has achieved good muscle stability it is essential to complete the rehabilitation program on field. The goal of on field rehabilitation is the global proprioceptive re-education through specific exercises aimed to restore vestibular function and spatial perception.
