Compression Fracture

The bones in the body become brittle and more fragile with age, including the vertebrae in the spine. When vertebrae lose bone density due to osteoporosis or other factors, they are more likely to fracture. The pressure put on the spine from the body can damage and weaken vertebrae, causing a compression fracture. Our team at Medici Medical Arts offers a variety of treatment options to reduce pain and improve mobility for patients with spinal compression fractures.

When a compression fracture occurs, the vertebra usually breaks in the front side, but not the back. This causes a “wedge,” or triangular shape, that decreases the height of the vertebra in the front. Wedge compression fractures tend to be stable but cause other pain and health issues. Other types of compression fractures can affect the entire vertebrae and cause spine instability. Almost all compression fractures occur in the thoracic or lumbar regions of the spine. Rarely, they occur in the cervical or neck area.

Symptoms of Compression Fractures

Compression fractions usually cause acute pain, which can lead to chronic back pain if not treated. Other symptoms and health issues caused by compression fractures include:

  • Spine instability
  • Nerve compression
  • Loss of height
  • Curved or humped spine
  • Pressure on or crowding of internal organs

Compression fractures are common. Some people with stable wedge fractures may have minimal symptoms, while others suffer chronic pain and a deformity of the spine. At Medici Medical Arts, we can create a personalized treatment plan for those with compression fractures, based on the extent of damage and their symptoms. We offer minimally and non-invasive treatments to reduce chronic pain and improve the stability of the spine.

If you have suffered a compression fracture that is causing you chronic pain or other health issues, contact Medici Medical Arts today to schedule your consultation. We will devise a treatment plan to improve your quality of life and health.

We can help you!

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
