Need more info: Hi. What degree of trauma caused 4 vert. compression fractures? If it was heavy trauma, maybe nothing's abnormal. If it was minimal trauma, that is very abnormal. It would help to know your bone densitometry T-scores and blood tests to look at calcium, kidney function, PTH, bone turnover markers, and any other tests prompted by a thorough medical evaluation by a metabolic bone specialist.
