Fractures of the Thoracic and Lumbar Spine

Most spinal fractures occur in the thoracic (midback) and lumbar spine (lower back) or at the connection of the two (thoracolumbar junction). Treatment depends on the severity of the fracture and whether the patient has other associated injuries.

Understanding how your spine works will help you to understand spinal fractures. Learn more about your spine: Spine Basics
