A spine fracture, also known as a vertebral compression fracture, is a common orthopaedic condition that involves the fracture or collapse of a vertebra in the spine. The condition can be caused by trauma or injury to the spine, such as a fall or car accident, or by degeneration of the bones due to osteoporosis or other conditions that weaken the bone.
The symptoms of a spine fracture can include back pain, tenderness, difficulty bending or twisting, and loss of height.
Getting a proper evaluation and treatment recommendations from Dr. Mammu is crucial. The treatment plan suggested will be based on the specific needs of the patient and the severity of their condition.
