Many people spend about 80% of their free time practicing sports, including skiing, which in many cases can cause changes in the skeletal system, muscular system and other organs. The aim of this article is to discuss the treatment of a 25-year-old man who suffered a compressive fracture of the C6 vertebra with paresis of the ulnar nerve. The treatment used physiotherapy with changing magnetic fields (magnetostimulation, magnetolaserotherapy, kinesitherapy exercises) with good effects. On the basis of the results we discovered that these treatment methods can accelerate the time of treatment and increase quality of life.
