  • Compression fractures occur when the bones of the spine break by pressing on themselves. Most often, this is caused by weakened spinal bones due to such conditions as Osteoporosis or cancer (off the bone).

  • Back pain along spine
  • Loss of height


  • Spine X-Rays
  • Spinal CT scan or MRI if diagnosis is unclear

  • Anti-inflammatory or narcotic pain medications as needed
  • Support braces help some patients.
