What is a Vertebral Compression Fracture?
A vertebral compression fracture is exactly what it sounds like - it is when a vertebra is the spine is fractured or damaged due to high pressure and compression. This condition is very painful and typically affects patients with weaker bones or osteoporosis. While it's hard to diagnose a vertebral compression fracture without an x-ray, some signs that may point to this condition include urinary incontinence, difficulty moving around, and a tingling sensation in the limbs. If you feel you are suffering from a vertebral compression fracture, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our specialists at your earliest convenience.

While a vertebral compression fracture is typically caused by osteoporosis damaging the body, other factors that may put patients at risk of developing this type of fracture include a spinal injury, congenital disease, spinal tumor, and spinal infection.
