Fractures are common diseases that the continuity of the bone is broken. It could occur when the physical force exerted on the bone is stronger than the bone itself. There are many types of fractures, and vertebral compression fracture is one of the most common type which is generally occurs in the spongy bone in the spine and happens from a fall from a standing height or less, but without major trauma such as a motor vehicle accident [1]. Vertebral compression fractures usually occur in the mid-thoracic or thoracolumbar transition zone of the spine. Vertebral compression fracture is common in the elderly. But there is still no ideal treatment for this disease [2].
