Compression Fracture

A compression fracture is a type of fracture, or broken bone that affects your vertebrae, the bones in your back. Compression fractures can cause these bones to collapse, making them shorter in height. Often, the front side of the vertebra loses height, but the rear side doesn’t. As a result these fractures can cause your posture to stoop forward over time.
