Tennis elbow. Golfer’s elbow. Jumper’s knee. They’re all forms of tendinitis—inflammation or irritation of a tendon (one of the thick cords that attach your bone to muscle). And whatever the name, the result is the same: pain or tenderness around a joint, including your elbows, shoulders and knees.

Balloon kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat painful compression fractures in the spine. These fractures are most commonly the result of osteoporosis. When osteoporosis causes the bones in the spine (vertebrae) to weaken, they can collapse or compress from even routine movements of daily living. Compression fractures can also be caused by cancer damage or traumatic injury. While most compression fractures heal on their own, some can lead to a loss of height, hunched posture and chronic pain.
