Screening ­using frac­ture ­risk assess­ments can iden­ti­fy ­those at great­est ­risk. Medical and non-med­i­cal com­prise appro­pri­ate, com­pre­hen­sive treat­ment pro­grams. The min­i­mal­ly inva­sive ­spine pro­ce­dures ver­teb­ro­plas­ty and kypho­plas­ty can ­help to sig­nif­i­cant­ly ­reduce ­pain and defor­mity in ­patients ­with ­severe ­pain and defor­mity ­from ver­te­bral frac­ture.
