Caption: This is an illustration of a compression fracture of a vertebra in the spine. This is the most common type of fracture associated with the spine; it causes the bone to crack and collapse due to weakness or injury to the spine, commonly the result of Osteoporosis. Compression fractures can also occur if cancer spreads to the bones and the spine from other areas of the body.
