Studies show that one new spine fracture occurs every 22 seconds worldwide. Worse, most of these fractures go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
And that leads to a tremendous amount of suffering for patients who visit the doctor with back pain caused by a fracture, but leave empty handed with no clear answers and no plan of action.
It’s important to recognize the warning signs of a breaking spine, then talk to a local bone health and osteoporosis specialist that can help.
