Greetings everyone. I hope the holiday season has blessed you and your families, and that everyone is in (or on the way to) good health.
I am a 27 year old male, living in Houston, TX. About 10 years ago, I suffered a compression fracture in the T11/T12 area. Treatment consisted of bedrest on a simple fulcrum (folded towel under the lower-middle back), followed by light duty (less than 5lbs.) for 6 months.
This treatment had a seemingly positive effect, as I had little to no discomfort afterwards. However, here in the past 5 years or so I have experienced some moderate pain and other difficulties. I will post more about these issues in another thread on a more appropriate forum, but I figured I would at least introduce myself.
I work full time as a systems engineer, working in an office environment. I had been pretty physically active until July when I had a serious "attack" of pain and the other (seemingly) related issues.
I look forward to taking part in the community here and learning more about my conditions.
