Vertebral fractures are a common and potentially debilitating source of new onset back pain, typically occurring in the mid and lower regions of the back. These fractures are usually confined to the back, and unlike some other back pain conditions, the pain doesn’t tend to radiate to other parts of the body. Such fractures can occur spontaneously, particularly in individuals with osteoporosis—a condition that weakens the bones—or as a result of trauma, such as a fall or accident.
Diagnosing a vertebral fracture usually involves advanced imaging techniques. A CT (Computed Tomography) scan or an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) can be utilized to get detailed images of your spine, allowing doctors to identify any fractures and assess their severity. These advanced imaging tools can also help identify any associated complications, such as nerve compression or spinal instability, that might require specific treatment approaches.
At Dallas Pain Institute, we understand the impact that a vertebral fracture can have on your quality of life. Pain and reduced mobility can limit your ability to carry out everyday activities, affect your mental wellbeing, and even lead to further health complications. That’s why our approach to care is centered around providing prompt diagnosis and treatment to alleviate your pain and restore your mobility.
We offer a variety of treatment options, ranging from non-surgical methods like pain medication and physical therapy to more advanced treatments such as kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty. These minimally invasive procedures involve injecting bone cement into the fractured vertebrae to stabilize the spine and reduce pain.
