Normally we don’t experience pain from osteoporosis until we sustain a fracture. Due to this lack of pain, some fractures may go unnoticed. This is not the case with all compression fractures and some can cause significant pain. If this happens to you, don’t wait to have it check since both vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty spinal procedures can only be completed before the fracture starts to heal, which is generally within the first three months post fracture. Vertebroplasty can be accomplished on slightly older fractures, but kyphoplasty needs to be considered within the first three months and before the callous forms on the broken bone. For pain relievers that can be used during the healing phase see the list below.
