Figure 1: L2 burst fracture managed non-operatively. A 16-year-old male patient sustained an asymmetric L2 burst fracture after falling off the motorcycle (a and b). The patient was neurologically intact, and sagittal T2 MRI (c) confirmed the integrity of the posterior ligamentous complex. The patient was treated non-operatively with a hyperextension brace (d). Two years after the injury, the patient was pain free with no physical complaints. Imaging revealed 20° of focal scoliosis (e) and 16° of kyphosis (f)
