Vertebral Compression Fractures
Fractures occur when the bones of the spine become broken due to trauma. Generally, the trauma necessary to break the bones of the spine is quite large. Though in certain circumstances, such as in elderly people and in people with cancer, these same bones can break with little or no force. Treatment can range from conservative bracing to surgery. Surgery may be required to prevent the spine from pressing on the spinal cord or to stabilize the vertebra adjacent to the fracture site.
