Although vertebral fractures are common among older women, little is known about associations with pain and disability.
In this prospective study, fractures which occurred after the initial radiograph were strong predictors of back pain and disability at the end of followup, with odds ratios (OR) of approximately 45.
Other, independently significant predictors were self-reported history of (1) disk disease (OR=3-9), (2) traumatic back injury (OR=47), and (3) spinal arthritis (OR=3-6).
In longitudinal analyses, new fractures were associated (OR=6.4; 95% CI=2.6, 15.6) with increases in back pain frequency (relative to pre-fracture levels).
