The alternative treatments to vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty are living with the pain, rest, wearing a back brace, physical therapy for core muscle strengthening and pain medicine. Please click on Kyphoplasty for more information on vertebral body compression fractures.
I would recommend seeing a spine surgeon if you are considering vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty. You should bring your x-rays, CT and MRI to be reviewed and interpreted to determine the best treatment for you. For more information about spinal compression fractures, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, please click Kyphoplasty.
