Q. What if a fracture goes undiagnosed and untreated?
If you feel as though you may have a fracture, you could very well be right. Silent fractures in the spine happen more often than people think. For example, 2/3 of people with vertebral fractures never know it because the pain is not serious enough to recognize. We encourage you to get an assessment if a silent fracture may even be just a question you are asking yourself. If untreated it can build up to larger fractures. Paying attention to what your body or mind is telling you is extremely vital. If you have one fracture it is more likely that others will occur.
