Vertebral Compression Fracture

A vertebral compression fracture (VCF) occurs when one or more of the bones that makes up the spinal column, known as a vertebra, collapses. This is typically due to vertical compression that exceeds what the vertebra is able to endure. This is most often due to osteoporosis, but can be caused by trauma and cancer. Symptoms may range from none, to pain & numbness at the site of the VCF, difficulty walking to loss of bowel and bladder control.
