  Title L5 vertebral compression fracture: A series of five cases [case report]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1995 Feb;18(2):91-97
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this paper is to discuss five cases of L5 vertebral compression fracture (VCF), illustrating the epidemiology, clinical presentation and radiographic appearance of the fracture at this uncommon site. Additionally, an empirical approach to conservative management of L5 VCFs is also discussed.

DESIGN: A series of five cases.

SETTING: Private chiropractic clinic.

CONCLUSIONS: Compression fractures at the L5 level are rare; however, this problem should be considered in postmenopausal women who suffer from low back pain and in young men with a history of trauma. Conservative treatment options, including both passive therapy and exercise, can be beneficial in the management of this condition.
