Sometimes the source of your back pain may be the collapse of your spine due to a compression fracture. This type of fracture is called “vertebral body (spinal) compression fracture”. This type of fracture usually happens in the thoracic or lumbar level of your spine (mid or lower portion of your back). This condition may be very painful and cause severe functional limitations. The vertebral body compression fracture usually happens due to severe osteoporosis, metastatic disease, or trauma.
