My friend fractured a spinal column while doing gymnastics. What the treatments be?

Spine fracture. Depending on the location and the type of fracture, it could be just immobilization in a brace or collar or surgery may be indicated if there is instability. That is typically rare from a fall, though. Have her/h evaluated by a spine trauma specialist to determine the extend of injury and have yourself educated about treatment options. Good luck.
