VERTEBRAL COMPRESSION FRACTURES
Vertebral compression fractures are small cracks in the bones of the spine that surround the spinal cord. These fractures in the vertebrae can cause them to shorten in height, thus putting pressure on the spinal cord and surrounding nerves. This may also result in the reduction in the flow of blood and oxygen to the spinal cord.
