The primary objective of this trial is to show that PTH(1-84) is superior to alendronate in reducing back pain intensity over a 24-week treatment period in postmenopausal women with an osteoporosis related vertebral fracture(s).
Secondly the objectives are to investigate any differences in patient reported outcomes between the two treatment arms over a 24-week treatment period in postmenopausal women with an osteoporosis related vertebral fracture(s).

- Change in Back Pain Intensity During 24 Weeks of Treatment Using a Numerical Rating Scale. [ Time Frame: Baseline and 24 weeks treatment ]The daily patient assessment of intensity of back pain is based on the Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) which is an 11-point numerical rating scale (from 0-10 with 0 = "no pain" and 10 = "unendurable pain").
- Change in Physical Disability and Patient Reported Outcomes During 24 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline and 24 weeks treatment ]
Three times during the trial the patients will be asked how their pain affects their ability to manage everyday life. This information will be collected by use of the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) questionnaire. The questions relate to daily life activities and indicate to what extent a person's functional level is restricted by pain.
ODI scores from 0 = "no disability" to 100 = "maximum disability".
Patient reported outcomes will be assessed by using two questionnaires related to health status and quality of life status.
