After Effects of a Broken Neck

Hi my favorite readers! I am a firm believer in mind over matter. There are, however, some situations where this does not apply. Or, if it does, I do not understand how. The physicalities overrule the mental aspect. Here are a few that apply to my fracturing my C-1 35 years ago….

A C-1 is the first cervical vertebrae. When fractured, it can easily lead to paralysis. Well, luckily, I have not been paralyzed. There are other after effects of the injury that I’ve been living with, though.

It is painful for me to move my neck to look straight up. It seems to pinch a nerve. This is not only uncomfortable and painful, but causes me to lose my balance. When looking up at say – an air show -, I need to brace my head with one of my hands. The discomfort is too immense, otherwise.

I am unable to reach over my head, look up and do activities like clean. Can’t say I really am sad about that. (My attempt at a joke). It is also difficult to change light bulbs in ceiling or overhead lights. Volleyball can be trying. Painting ceilings is very difficult.

Ladders and I do not get along. I do not use them. Loss of balance is too risky for me, especially if I have to look up. Even step stools may not cut it.

Combine all of this with my double vision that is a result of a closed head injury, and there are limitations I must face daily.

It could be much worse, though. For that, I am truly grateful.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

    After breaking vertebrae C2/3 in an accident in 2002, I have developed over the last 4 years, scoliosis, degenerative disc disease and sciatica which seems to be getting worse each day. I am wondering if my broken neck has triggered all of these spinal ailments. Medical information on the web does not tend to explain whether or not this can be. I manage but have questions that even doctors don’t seem to have the patience nor concern to completely answer to my satisfaction. Does anyone know whether these conditions can develop as a result of a broken neck? I would appreciate any feedback you can give. God bless.

  • HI Maria,
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment. I can speak from personal experience only and know that sciatica and degenerative disc disease can happen from a fracture. I recommend finding a medical professional who can patiently and competently answer your questions.
    Keep in touch and good luck!
