Hello everyone, glad i found this website, seems like it has alot of helpful insights into recovery, well my question that i have been searching for is has and does anyone with a thoracic disc herniation ever fully heal from the injury and would i be more likely to incur this injury again? This is my first "real" injury, needless to say im nervous, being only 23 i would have to say im nervous that this type of injury takes years of my firefighting career. Iv got another lumbar herniation but man i dont even feel that compared to the thoracic one, any advise or experiences with this would be helpful. thank you.


  • Hi and Welcome to Spine Health. I have no experience with thoracic disc issues, but wanted to make sure your post didn't get lost. I know there are some folks here with t-spine problems, they might be out goofing off for the weekend or something. Once they are back I'm sure you'll hear from one of them.

    Welcome aboard,

    Will take you to a thread that ties to the folks suffering thoracic issues.

    You are in the best section to discuss Thoracic problems:

    I had my first herniations with my Thoracic dsics over 10 years ago and have added some new ones! Can we ever fully recover from Thoracic problems? My feeling is NO. Thoracic discs are a real problem to deal with. The T-Discs do not respond well to standard treatments. The T-Discs are generally associated with deep muscles (upper or stomach area). You need a treatment that can get deep enough. For me, it was Deep Tissue Massage as the only treatment that worked. But, I still have those issues, I will have them, because surgery for those are not in my future. The best I do is try to manage the problems and discomfort from Thoracic discs.
    But, please discuss this in detail with your doctors.
