Objective. To learn about the physical, emotional, and social limitations experienced by postmenopausal women who have back pain due to vertebral fractures resulting from osteoporosis. Methods. We conducted a cross‐sectional survey of female patients with persistent pain due to vertebral fractures. Results. Respondents had a mean (±SD) bone density of 0.87 ± 0.13 gm/cm2 and a mean (±SD) of 2.48 ± 2.18 fractures. Disability was identified in pain, movement, activities of daily living, and emotion. There was a poor correlation between quality of life and findings on radiography or densitometry. Conclusion. To evaluate the effects of osteoporosis on a patient's functional status, direct questioning is required.
