Compression Fractures with our Midtown New York Chiropractor
A compression fracture is a common cause of back pain. This condition is characterized by tiny cracks in the vertebrae of the spine. Compression fractures can occur suddenly or gradually.

We offer premier chiropractic care for the pain of compression fractures and other issues of the back and neck. We are your Rockefeller Center chiropractic doctor with a proven record of success.
Symptoms of Spinal Decompression The symptoms of spinal compression fractures often include:
- Pain that’s worse while standing or walking, but feels better when you are laying down
- Difficulty in twisting or bending the body
- A stooped or curved shape to the spine
- Physical loss of height
- Hip pain
- Stomach issues
- Breathing problems
A compression fracture can have numerous causes, including:
- Bending over to pick something up
- Lifting a heavy item improperly
- Slipping or making a misstep
- Lifting a heavy item from just below waist level
Spinal compression fractures can take up to 3 months to heal completely. For some people, pain can persist indefinitely and/or flare up from time to time. Without treatment, the area where the compression fracture occurred can remain weakened and have a higher likelihood of becoming injured again in the future. However, some people will feel almost no symptoms at all. This is because some compression fractures can occur very gradually with overuse injury and repetitive movements. The cracks are subtle and only cause mild pain at first, but with increased overuse, they can gradually become worse over time.
