Sacral Spine Fracture
The sacral spine, or sacrum, is the triangular shaped bone made up of five fused vertebrae that is located below the lumbar region. Where the lumbar spine and sacral spine connect, there is an intervertebral disc, and this area is often subjected to large amounts of stress. The sacral spine is vulnerable to serious injury in accidents involving trauma and sacral fractures, which can have significant consequences for their victims.
