Compression fractures of the spine can occur as a result of traumatic injury. Usually a large amount of trauma is necessary to break the bones of the spine; however, elderly people with advanced osteoporosis or patients with cancer can experience these fractures with little or no force.
The intense pain from compression fractures can limit a patient’s mobility and respiratory function, which can lead to other health problems. Similar spine pain can also occur as a result of tumor invasion.
Kyphoplasty can reduce the pain caused by compression fractures.
Precision Pain Care uses strategies, methods and technology designed to break the cycle of pain and improve a patient’s quality of life.
