Compression Fracture

Compression fractures are fractures that occur in the vertebra of the spine following a compressive trauma. In young healthy people the force required to cause a compression fracture is significant, for example a fall on the buttocks or a hyperflexion injury. However there are bone-weakening disorders that can make the vertebra more susceptible to fractures, including osteoporosis and bone cancer. In these cases, the force required to cause a compression fracture of the vertebra can be significantly less and may follow a severe sneeze or an uneven landing from stepping off a curb.
