Has Anyone Heard Of AlgaeCal?

A MyOsteoTeam Member asked a question 💭

Do Compression Fractures Of The Vertebrae Really Heal?

A MyOsteoTeam Member asked a question 💭

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!

A MyOsteoTeam Member

Don’t sit for too long without getting up and moving about. Otherwise, I get too stiff to move! Rigor mortis.
