When a vertebral body collapses, it can increase the risk of a fracture. Fractures affect thousands of Americans annually. Thinning bones in osteoporosis can turn a minor fall, simple bending or a lifting movement into a traumatic situation.

Most people do not realize that sudden and intense back pain may be the sign of a compression fracture. Left untreated, a vertebral fracture can lead to additional fractures, spinal deformity and the loss of ability to function. Symptoms of fractures may include:

  • Loss of height
  • Humpback (kyphosis)
  • Loss of balance (which can increase risk of falling)
  • Neurologic symptoms such as numbness, tingling or weakness (which increases the risks of falling & breaking bones)
