Cement Your Pain Free Way of Living

Have you taken a fall recently? Have you been diagnosed with a spinal compression fracture? If the answer is yes, you may be a candidate for kyphoplasty.


As we age, osteoporosis can set in and weaken our bones. During this process, multiple hairline fractures can occur in the vertebrae, and as the structure continues to deteriorate and weaken, it can result in a collapse or compression fracture. This can be extremely painful as fragments now grate against each other. The compression fracture can result in a humped posture as well as a decrease in height.

Kyphoplasty is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that can be implemented to treat these fractures. During the procedure, a small balloon is inflated within the vertebra creating space and restoring height, then acrylic bone cement is injected into the fracture. This helps seal the fracture and prevent future compression fractures while giving improved stability and decreased pain.

There may be some residual soreness for a few days, but most patients are able to return to normal activity without restrictions right away. If you have fallen, fear not, you can get up, and kyphoplasty may just be the pathway to get you there and recover from your compression fracture. Please talk to our pain specialists at ASAP for more information.
