Osteoporosis can lead to painful spinal compression fractures when it gets severe enough. Prior to the mid 1990′s, the only treatments available were spinal bracing and pain medications, until vertebroplasty came along as an outpatient procedure using bone cement to instantly fix the compression fractures.
The procedure is outpatient, low risk, and takes about a half hour. Pain relief is instantaneous!
