Clay Shoveler's Fracture Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Clay shoveler's fracture is an uncommon breakage of the spine of the vertebrae from the lower neck or upper back as a result of stress. Clay-shoveler's fracture usually occurs in laborers who perform activities involving lifting weights rapidly with the arms extended. Examples of these activities include shoveling soil, rubble or snow up and over the head backwards, using a pickax or scythe, and pulling out roots.
