In brief: Depends

Does your son have a cervical spine fracture, because that really is scary, or was the doctor talking about your son's behavior that could result in cervical spine fracture? How old is your son and what was the context of the talk?

In brief: Does he have one?

A cervical spine fracture can indeed be serious.
If there is instability you can have spinal cord damage. Did the doctor tell him not to do certain activities or he may get a fracture or did he do something and there is a possibility that there is a fracture?
