Old Compression Fracture Treatment

Started by Ben.F on 11/17/2017 3:48am

I was just wondering if anyone had any experience insights into treating old Compression fractures that are becoming symptomatic again. 7 years ago when I was 13 I had 3 Compression Fracturesin my spine (T2-T4). I was treated conservatively, but over the past year and a half I’ve been having increasing chronic pain and it feels like my spine is getting deformed because I can’t maintain proper posture and my upper body is asymmetrical. I’ve read a lot about the connection between multiple compression fractures and long term consequences, so I have some guesses as to what’s happening, but obviously can’t diagnose myself, and I know little about treatment options for this.

Do you find this discussion helpful?
