 The causes of thoracolumbar fracture are different depending on the patient's age. In younger patients, the fracture is more likely to occur due to high-energy trauma, such as motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, and falling injuries. However, in the elderly, even falls from a standing position to the ground can cause fractures due to osteoporosis and decreased cognition. The causes of thoracolumbar fracture are different depending on the patient's age.
