Spinal Compression Fracture Treatment Options Available at Pain Care for People in Johns Creek, GA
Compression fracture treatment depends heavily on which bones are affected and what symptoms the fracture is causing. In the cases of spinal compression fractures, the damage can lead to a collapse of the bone, causing symptoms ranging from neck or back pain to a condition known as kyphosis, or the gradual stooping of the neck. If you have experienced a compression fracture, and you live in or around Johns Creek, Georgia, Pain Care is here to help you address the fracture itself as well as its symptoms.
At every Pain Care location – including the office in Johns Creek, GA – our board-certified physicians focus on each patient as an individual, using their expertise in pain treatment to provide a more comprehensive approach than some other providers might. That means that we won’t just prescribe pain medications and send you on your way. We want to evaluate your particular compression fracture and develop a thorough treatment plan to meet your needs and improve your quality of life. In addition to potentially prescribing medications and discussing other noninvasive options, we may recommend the following minimally invasive surgical options for a compression fracture:
- Kyphoplasty – This procedure involves injecting bone cement into a damaged vertebra to stabilize it and restore vertebral height. It utilizes a special balloon, which is inserted by a physician into the vertebra and then expanded. The resulting space is then filled with bone cement.
- Vertebroplasty – This procedure uses a different method to inject bone cement into the affected vertebra and restabilize it.
