Hi. Had results of MRI today 5 months post anterior L1 wedge fracture, having ongoing pain and therapy. I was shown and explained the fracture is stable so do not need surgery at present (kyphoblasty) and they will review only if in pain 2 yrs post fracture. The height anteriorly of L1 has been reduced by just over 50% (53) - does anyone know if that represents mild/average/marked compression? (Am trying to relate if the degree of compression correlates to speed of recovery).
