What is Osteoporosis
of the Spine?

Osteoporosis occurs when the body fails to produce new bone tissue at a rate sufficient to replace the old bone that is naturally broken down. As a result, the bones become porous, brittle, and prone to fractures.

In the case of the spine, osteoporosis can cause compression fractures, where the vertebrae collapse or develop small cracks, leading to pain, height loss, and a stooped posture. Our expertise lies in diagnosing and treating this condition effectively, ensuring you receive the best care tailored to your specific needs.

What Are Our Treatments for Osteoporosis of the Spine?

Discovering the Possibilities

The treatment for osteoporosis of the spine depends on the severity of the condition and the risk of fractures. Non-surgical approaches may include lifestyle modifications, exercise programs, nutritional counseling, and medications to improve bone density and reduce fracture risk. In some cases, when fractures or deformities occur, minimally invasive procedures or spinal surgery may be recommended to stabilize the spine and alleviate pain.

I read a bunch of great reviews before I went in. I didn’t know what to expect and was anxious before I went in but after speaking to the dr, I feel great about doing my back fusion. The dr. answered every questions and instead of doing a 2 steps, he will do a 1 step which is less invasive

Osteoporosis of the Spine FAQs

Answers to Common Questions. Click to Learn More

Osteoporosis of the spine is often caused by age-related bone loss, hormonal changes, nutritional deficiencies, and a sedentary lifestyle. It can also be influenced by certain medical conditions or medications that affect bone density.

Symptoms of osteoporosis of the spine may include back pain, loss of height, stooped posture, and an increased risk of fractures or deformities in the spine. The specific symptoms experienced can vary depending on the severity of the condition.

While it may not be possible to prevent osteoporosis entirely, certain measures can help reduce the risk or slow down its progression. These may include regular exercise, a balanced diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, and periodic bone density screenings.

Diagnosis of osteoporosis of the spine typically involves a combination of medical history review, physical examination, imaging tests (such as dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry or DXA scan) to measure bone density, and evaluation of fracture risk factors. These assessments help determine the presence and severity of osteoporosis, guide treatment decisions, and monitor response to treatment.

Treatment for osteoporosis of the spine aims to slow down bone loss, improve bone density, prevent fractures, and manage pain.

Non-surgical options include lifestyle modifications (such as a balanced diet, weight-bearing exercises, and fall prevention strategies), calcium and vitamin D supplementation, medications (such as bisphosphonates or hormone therapy), and physical therapy.

Surgical options, when necessary, may involve procedures like vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, spinal fusion, or other techniques to stabilize the spine and alleviate pain.

While osteoporosis of the spine cannot be completely reversed, appropriate treatment and lifestyle modifications can help slow down its progression, improve bone density, and reduce the risk of fractures. It is essential to work with your healthcare provider to develop a comprehensive plan that includes proper nutrition, exercise, and medication as necessary.
