Broken Neck

A broken neck is a fracture in one or more of the seven neck vertebrae.  As an injury it can range in severity from mild to fatal, and in some cases can result in paralysis. Complex neck fractures usually require major surgery, often involving the insertion of plates, screws and ‘cages’ into the spinal column.


The most common causes of neck fractures include sports injuries, road traffic accidents and falls.
