In this issue of Osteoporosis: Clinical Updates we will examine primary care management of VCF and the pain that can result. We will discuss effective pain control for new and recent fractures and for the potential consequences of multiple fractures. In the process, we provide a framework for patient-centered clinical decision making.
1) Help individual patients weigh the pros and cons of various pain control medications for symptomatic vertebral compression fractures.
