Osteoporosis (Compression Fracture)

Compression fracture of vertebrae leads to loss of vertebral height. Trauma of the spine or weakening of bones in the spine leading to compression fractures is very common in the elderly. This may lead to the development of chronic pain and disability. Kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty are minimally invasive procedures designed to treat pain from compression fractures.
