Vertebral Fracture Pain

Vertebral Fracture Pain


The type of fracture in the spine that is genrally caused by osteoporosis. These compression fractures can occur in vertebrae anywhere in the spine, but they tend to occur most commonly in the upper back (thoracic spine), particularly in the lower vertebrae of that section of the spine (e.g. T10, T11, T12). They rarely occur above the T7 level of the spine. They often occur in the upper lumbar segments as well, such as L1.
