Unless they healed in a highly collapsed manner, most healed compression fractures do not cause pain. Similarly, steroid injections in and of themselves do not cause pain. Degenerative disc disease, facet arthropathy, and SI problems are just three examples of more common causes. Be seen for correct diagnosis. ...Read more
