ABSTRACT
Objectives:
This study aimed to determine the effects of Korean medical treatment on a patient with compression fractures.

Methods:
The patient was treated with herbal medicine and acupuncture for 51 days. Symptom changes were measured using the Numerical Rating Scale (NRS), Range of Motion (ROM), Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), and European Quality of Life Five Dimensions (EQ-5D) Scale.

Results:
The NRS score for lower back pain decreased from 7 to 3, and the ODI score decreased from 51.11 to 22.22. Range of motion (ROM) increased meaningfully in flexion(from 30 to 60), Left/Right lateral bending(from 10/30 to 30/45), Left/Right rotation (from 10/30 to 30/45), and the EQ-5D score also increased from 0.506 to 0.677.

Conclusion:
The results indicate that Korean medical treatment may be effective for managing patients’ acute compression fractures.
Key words: lumbar compression fracture, herbal medicine, Korean medicine treatment
