Are you at risk for a vertebral compression fracture?
A vertebral compression fracture—occurs when one of the bones within the spinal column weakens and collapses. Then can be a cause of great pain, and left untreated, can lead to more serious health problems and/or permanent deformity.
When medication, back braces and other traditional forms of medical management do not work, IHS has a minimally invasive treatment option. Kyphoplasty effectively strengthens and restores height to the fractured vertebra and can reduce or eliminate pain almost immediately following the procedure.1
