Spine Compression Fracture Treatment at Regency Square Care Center

Oct 7, 2017

Welcome to Regency Square Care Center, a leading provider of specialized geriatric and aging care services. We understand the unique challenges faced by individuals with spine compression fractures and offer comprehensive treatment options to promote healing and enhance quality of life.

What are Spine Compression Fractures?

Spine compression fractures occur when the vertebrae in the spine collapse or break. These fractures commonly affect older adults, particularly those with osteoporosis or weakened bones. The condition can cause severe pain, loss of mobility, and other debilitating symptoms.

Effective and Tailored Treatment Plans

At Regency Square Care Center, we prioritize personalized and effective treatment plans for spine compression fractures. Our experienced team of healthcare professionals utilizes advanced techniques and evidence-based approaches to ensure optimal outcomes for our patients.

1. Diagnosis and Assessment

Accurate diagnosis is the first step towards an effective treatment plan. Our skilled physicians employ various diagnostic tools, including X-rays, CT scans, and MRI imaging, to assess the extent and location of the spine compression fracture. We also conduct a thorough medical history review and physical examination to understand the specific needs of each patient.

2. Non-Surgical Treatment Options

In many cases, non-surgical treatment methods can effectively manage spine compression fractures. We offer a range of conservative treatment options, including:

  • Pain Management: Our dedicated pain management team devises customized plans to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with spine compression fractures. These may include medications, physical therapy, and other non-invasive techniques.
  • Bracing: Depending on the severity and location of the fracture, we may recommend bracing to provide additional support and stability while promoting healing.
  • Physical Therapy: Our skilled physical therapists develop tailored exercise regimens to improve strength, flexibility, and overall mobility. Physical therapy can significantly enhance recovery and prevent future fractures.
  • Assistive Devices: We assist patients in obtaining necessary assistive devices, such as canes or walkers, to facilitate safe movement during the healing process.

3. Surgical Interventions

In cases where non-surgical methods do not provide sufficient relief or if the fracture is severe, surgical intervention might be necessary. Our team of highly trained orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons are well-versed in the latest surgical techniques to address spine compression fractures. Some surgical options include:

  • Vertebroplasty: This minimally invasive procedure involves the injection of medical-grade bone cement into the fractured vertebra to provide stability and pain relief.
  • Kyphoplasty: A similar procedure to vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty involves the insertion of a balloon-like device into the fractured vertebra, which is then inflated to create a cavity. The cavity is filled with bone cement, restoring vertebral height and reducing pain.
  • Spinal Fusion: In more complex cases, spinal fusion may be recommended. This procedure involves the fusion of multiple vertebrae to enhance stability and relieve pressure on the affected area.

Comprehensive Rehabilitation and Support

At Regency Square Care Center, we understand that the road to recovery extends beyond medical intervention. Our dedicated team of rehabilitation specialists and nurses provide comprehensive support throughout the healing process.

1. Rehabilitation Services

We offer a wide range of rehabilitation services to aid in the recovery of spine compression fractures, including:

  • Physical Therapy: Our skilled physical therapists work with patients to regain strength, improve balance, and restore functional independence.
  • Occupational Therapy: Our occupational therapists focus on helping patients regain daily living skills and adapt to any physical limitations caused by the fracture.
  • Pain Management: Our interdisciplinary team collaborates to develop tailored pain management strategies, ensuring optimal comfort during the recovery process.

2. Emotional and Psychological Support

We recognize that spine compression fractures can have a significant emotional and psychological impact on patients. Our compassionate team provides ongoing emotional support, counseling, and resources to address these concerns and promote overall well-being.
