Spinal Compression Fractures
are characterized by several small fractures or "cracks" in the vertebrae of the spine. Over time, these fractures begin to weaken the vertebrae and result in spinal instability as well as pain. Spinal Compression Fractures are a progressive condition and are generally the result of osteoporosis or other bone disorders.
