Scottsdale Pain Management Doctor Vengurlekar Discusses Spinal Compression Fractures

Scottsdale pain management doctor explains spinal compression fractures and the best treatment methods.

Spinal compression fractures are just one of the many different pain conditions that top Scottsdale pain management doctor, Dr. Sham Vengurlekar, treats on a daily basis.

Spinal compression fractures can happen for a variety of reasons including:

– Any sort of trauma that the back has sustained

– Osteoporosis

– Tumors in the spine

– Tumors in the bone

Because spinal compression fractures can occur very quickly, it is important to seek out medical attention as soon as possible. Due to the very nature of this type of fracture, pain can be excruciating and is usually felt in the middle and lower portions of the spine, though the pain in the sides of the spine and front of the spine can also be experienced. It is not a dull, throbbing pain that patients experience but rather a sharp or “knife-like” pain that can be completely debilitating and can take weeks or even months to go away.
