Adequate conservative management of osteoporotic vertebral fractures remains important in an aging population.
We performed a research of multiple databases and present important studies in this narrative review.
The pertinent literature remains scarce and of mixed quality. However, trends are shown to support early mobilization, less rigid bracing and pharmaceutical secondary prevention.
There is insufficient data to recommend the optimal conservative management for osteoporotic vertebral fractures. As such high-quality studies need to be conducted to establish a solid course of action.
