I have been diagnosed with 2 compression fractures one of T7 and L4 over a year ago, T7 still causes me pain especially when I'm on my feet for extended periods of time and when I perform house cleaning jobs such as vacuuming and mopping floors. I work in retail so I have no alternative but to be on my feet for 7 to 8 hours a day. Everything I've read said they should heal within 6 to 8 weeks but I just dont that is my case. Any feed back is welcome!
What we recommend for all autoimmune disorders which includes compression fractures is quite simple really...
1. StemEnhance Ultra 3 caps twice a day for at least 8-10 months
2. Progesterone cream to build bone density
3. Gluten Free diet
This combination always works wonders.
I wear a sports belt sometimes when doing housework and walking, I found that helpful.xxx
I know that you are in a lot pain, and no fun.
Last year I fractured my L1, L2 and T12. After an MRI for each fracture, my ortho Dr recommended having a kyphoplasty. It was either that or they suggested a vest to rebuild the bone naturally, but it would take 6-8 weeks, and I figured hot and cumbersome. I had a kyphoplasty after each fracture- (last one was last Aug 1) an intervention radiologist cements/glues the bone back together. It is on an outpatient basis; out by 1 or 2 PM. The only discomfort I had was my muscle in the area was a little sore. I had 8 weeks of PT, and much better. Exercising/walking helps. No more fractures, but it is an ongoing work in progress with diet and exercise. Wishing you good Health!
They will usually heal but it takes much longer due to the osteo. Our bones are constantly replacing themselves throughout our lives. As we age, this process slows down and our bones weaken. Hence, osteoarthritis. It is discouraging but that's what happens.
