Schmorls node cure?

2 years ago I had an MRI and it showed I ha e schmorls nodes in a few areas along my spine. Just a general question, is schmorls nodes curable? Or is it permanent? Can i never gym again doing exercises that involve the back? I just turned 18, and if i have to live with this for the rest of my life, i dont know if i could cope. Im literally restricted from bending to pick up even a book or water bottle. 



  • Hey harryk2000,

    I've been dealing with shmorl's nodes for about a year and they have been found on my thoracic spine (T8-T11) after I kept pushing to schedule an MRI. No disc herniation or buldge found. I have been dealing with burning, shooting pain. My doctor has tested my blood for inflammation or AS. The blood work came back fine but I still have this stabbing feeling when I bend over or pick up things. 

    I have been trying light excersises that don't load the spine. Mainly reverse flies on a flat bench for my upper back muscles, and pull ups. Swimming helped me a lot and releases some of the pressure on my spine. I hope yours aren't as bad as mine. We found the nodes when I got injured at work and it hasn't been easy let me tell you. Send me a message anytime, I check this forum regularly! 



  • Try heat. I had a node that flared up bad. It took about a year but the pain finally went away.
