Spinal Compression Fracture

Spinal compression fractures are small breaks in bones when too much pressure is applied on them. This condition is also known as vertebral compression fractures. Usually, healthy bones can handle pressure, however, weakened bones cannot. They can easily break due to mild injury, trauma or osteoporosis.

Compression fractures occur in the lower part of the spine. They can occur at mid level as well. This can be a painful condition that requires patients to seek medical advice and treatment. Due to lack of proper bone stability it can damage your spinal cord or nerves. And in the long run, such damage can lead to heart condition and lung problems.

Spinal Compression Fracture

Let's look at the common causes of spinal compression.

Osteoporosis

This is a condition that is a leading cause of stress fracture. The bones become brittle as they lose their density causing your spine to become easily fractured. It is a frequent bone disorder that occurs in women over the age of 50.

Did you know that bone tumours are another cause of spinal fracture? Bone tumours which result from multiple myeloma and metastatic cancer can weaken the bones and cause pressure on your spinal cord. This results in spinal fractures as well.
