Spine Fractures




Spine fractures are twice as common as hip fractures and three times more common that breast cancer. Also, spinal fractures are the most common in postmenopausal women over 55.

Dr. Ronald Tolchin, Medical Director of the Baptist Health Center for Spine Care, adds when people get older, it is very common to see women who suffered from osteoporosis and their bones demineralize and also become soft.

Fractures can happen in women as well as in men, the doctor says.
