Simple compression fractures can still result in a significant kyphosis (an abnormal structural bending forward of the spine) which can result in significant problems at this level as well as problems above and below. What is the measured kyphosis at the fracture levels?

Diagnostic blocks that temporarily eliminate the pain are great tools to map out the pain generators (see pain diary on the website). If you had good temporary relief, where were the blocks performed and what type of blocks were they (facet blocks, epidurals, SNRBs)?
