Episode 10: Improving the Treatment Pathway for Vertebral Compression Fractures
Is it a pulled muscle, or a vertebral compression fracture? Vertebral compression fractures can sometimes be painless, but are still a significant risk to overall health. So how do we diagnose and treat something we may not even know we have? In this episode, Dr. Douglas P. Beall, Chief of Radiology Services at Clinical Radiology of Oklahoma, sits down with NOF CEO, Elizabeth Thompson to discuss.
Dr. Beall is passionate about improving the treatment pathway for vertebral compression fractures, and helping others be aware of them and how to diagnose and treat them early. In addition to treating patients, Dr. Beall is also a clinical researcher, working to improve medical knowledge of osteoporosis treatment options and pain management. If you have been diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis, or know someone who has, this is a podcast you won’t want to miss!
