Treating Compression fractures of the spine in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Compression fractures of the spine are caused by the collapse of the vertebral bone that can affect one or more of the vertebrae. It results in a severe deformity of the spinal column and is typically caused by osteoporosis. Compression fractures may affect any of the vertebrae, but most commonly occur in the lower thoracic and upper lumbar regions.

Symptoms

Symptoms of compression fractures typically include pain and a forward curving of the spine that can result in a hunched appearance and loss of height. It also can include loss of range of motion and reduction of sensations in the arms and legs.

Treatment

Treatment options may include rest, medications to control pain, and physical therapy. If these options are not successful surgical procedures such as a vertebroplasty or kphyoplasty may be used to stabilize the fracture and help prevent future fractures of the bone.
