Loss of vertrbral height

Exactly what does this mean??


  • I guess I should rephrase my question. I know what the obvious answer is to this. I guess what I'm really wondering is exactly how does this affect the spine over time?? Do you just keep loosing height until the vertebra collapses completely and at what point is a vertebra considered completely collapsed?? I have one that is at 30% collapsed. My dr said it was going to be a real problem later on. Do they fix collapsed vertebra's with a fusion or vertebroplasty??
