Learn more about compression fractures

In a spinal compression fracture, the bone tissue of the vertebral body collapses. This is commonly caused by osteoporosis and less often by a tumor or trauma. Vertebral compression fractures due to osteoporosis often occur when doing something that causes minor strain to the spine, such as opening a window or making the bed.

Learn more about epidural steroid injections

Epidural steroid injections are typically used to alleviate chronic lower back and or leg pain. Time frame of treatment varies, from one week to up to a year. An epidural injection delivers steroids directly into the epidural space and helps to reduce inflammation and pain. This procedure is highly effective because it delivers medication directly to the site of inflammation. Treatment can relieve pain for periods ranging from one week to up to one year.

Learn more about vertebroplasty

Vertebroplasty is a safe and effective treatment to relieve the pain associated with vertebral compression fractures without open surgery. The procedure involves injecting bone cement into the vertebrae to stabilize the fracture. X-ray guidance is used to ensure accurate placement. Vertebroplasty dramatically reduces pain, protects against further collapse of the vertebrae and is a minimally invasive procedure performed on an outpatient basis.

Learn more about radiofrequency neurotomy

Radiofrequency neurotomy is performed while patients are awake but sedated. Using X-ray guidance, the physician will insert a needle and electrode into the treatment location. After finding correct placement, a high-frequency electrical current is passed through the electrode to heat up the lesioning and sensory nerve. The heat “shuts off” the transmission of pain signals to the brain, which can last up to two years. This procedure allows greater range of motion, shorter recovery time and less recovery pain compared to traditional surgery.
