Caption: An illustration depicting a sagittal view of compression fractures at the L1 and L2 vertebrae as a result of osteoporosis. Over time as bone becomes weaker and more porous, they become more susceptible to injury and fractures, especially in situations where significant weight or stress is placed on the bone. In this case, the vertebral bodies of L1 and L2 have collapsed, resulting in a displacement of the bones and intervertebral discs into the spinal canal, resulting in pain and possibly reducing the patient's mobility.
