In a spine compression fracture, a portion of spine bone collapses or the entire spine bone collapses. A needle is inserted through the skin into the spine. X-rays are used to locate the correct area of the spine with the problem. A substance is injected into the bone that strengthens the collapsed area and can prevent it from collapsing again. This procedure is performed for thinning bones and to alleviate severe pain.
