Long Term Complications from thoracic compression fractures

Started by Ben.F on 12/10/2016 1:37am

I am a 19 year old male dealing with upper back issues. When I was 13, I had some mild anterior wedge compression fractures T2, T3, T4. I healed and have been fine for a long time, but am having some major issues now. I can feel I've developed some kind of spinal deformity because I can't get myself into perfect posture. It almost feels like I'm hunched over a bit and my chest is has a tendency to point to the left instead of straight outward. I'm unable to workout because I'm unable to do any upper body exercise like pushups or pullups in a symmetrical motion, and it's affecting the way I walk as well. From everything I've read, it seems like I could be developing post traumatic kyphosis or some kind of spinal deformity as a result of getting hurt at 13. If anybody has any insights into what's going on and if this is treatable that would be great.
