Slow Motorcycle Fall spinal injury

Case Study: Slow Motorcycle Fall (spinal injury)

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Case Study

Setting: You are day hiking in the local backcountry with a companion. A rider on an overland motorcycle into view, you realize that the rider is not in control of the bike. The rider goes down after a slow motorcycle fall and lands on their back. You cringe at the impact. The rider pops up, walks several steps, and then slowly kneels. The first thing you think is a spinal injury.
