If you’ve broken a bone in a fairly minor fall or accident, it may be the first sign of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis may cause back problems if the bones of your spine (vertebrae) become weak and damaged. These are known as vertebral crush fractures and can cause the vertebrae to ‘lose’ height, resulting in your spine starting to curve – you may look shorter.

Vertebral crush fractures can make breathing difficult because there’s less space under your ribs.

If you have a vertebral crush fracture, you will also have a greater risk of fracturing your hips or wrists. However, about one third of vertebral fractures are pain free and only discovered coincidentally on an X-ray.

The risk of having a fracture due to osteoporosis can be diagnosed either following an assessment of risk factors or by measuring bone density. Treatment for osteoporosis can reduce your risk of further painful fractures by 50-70% and can be arranged by our Private GPs.

If you suspect you may have osteoporosis, contact the Rheumatology Team at Baddow Hospital and make an appointment with one of our Private GPs.
