Vertebral fractures can be a terrible cause of new onset pain in the back and may occur in the mid and lower back. Fractures are generally localized to the back without radiating pain. The fractures can happen spontaneously in people with osteoporosis or with trauma. The diagnosis of a vertebral fracture can be made with a CT scan or MRI.
