What are

Spinal Compression Fractures?

In a vertebral compression fracture (VCF), the body collapses into itself (more in the front than the back) producing a “wedged” vertebra. When several vertebrae become wedge-shaped, people can develop a humped spine, called kyphosis. People with bones weakened by osteoporosis (a depletion of calcium) are especially prone to compression fractures.

Activities, such as lifting a heavy object, sneezing, or coughing may cause fractures. VCFs can lead to back pain, reduced physical activity, depression, loss of independence, decreased lung capacity, and difficulty sleeping.


Vertebral Augmentation:

A Safe & Effective Solution for Spinal Compression Fractures


Vertebroplasty is a procedure in which bone cement is injected directly into a fractured vertebral body in order to create a type of internal cast to stabilize the fractured bone.


Balloon Kyphoplasty

Similar to vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty is a procedure that is designed to create an internal cast inside of the fractured bone in order to stabilize it.


At the Spine Fracture Center, we understand how distressing both the symptoms and the stress of spinal compression fractures can be.
