Expert Vertebral Body Pain Treatment in Manhattan, Provided by Matthew Spiegel, MD


Vertebral body pain can occur in different areas of the spine but is most common in the low thoracic and lumbar regions. The pain is typically chronic, intense, persistent, and may be localized to a specific region. There are a variety of possible causes of vertebral body pain including osteoarthritis with Modic changes, vertebral body compression fractures, cancer infiltrations and vertebral body infections (osteomyelitis). If the pain is accompanied by neurological symptoms such as fever, sudden weakness of the extremities, and/or bowel or bladder dysfunction, it is best to seek medical attention.
