People with osteoporosis, tumors or other underlying conditions that weaken bone can get a spinal fracture with minimal trauma or normal activities of daily living.
Other fractures may be the result of high-energy trauma like a car crash, fall, sports accident, or an act of violence (e.g. gunshot wound).
Males experience high-energy injuries four times more often than females do. The spinal cord may be injured depending on the severity of the fracture.
