Pain from Spinal Compression Fracture

Compression fractures can cause severe back pain. Theresa Pazionis, Orthopedic and Spine Surgeon at Miami Cancer Institute, says fractures above T5 can be a risk factor for having an underlying cause for your fracture, like osteoporosis or a tumor.

The pain from compression fracture is most commonly felt in the middle or lower spine, can also be felt on the sides or in the front of the spine. The pain is sharp and "knife-like", can be disabling and takes weeks or months to go away.
