Spinal Deformity years after compression fracture.

I am 19 years old, and am having a lot of back issues. 5 years ago when I was 13, I had some mild compression fractures in my T2, T3, T4. They healed, I was told I would be fine for the rest of my life, and I've been pain free for a long time and very active. Recently, I've started to have some mild pain in my upper back and it feels like I'm developing some spinal deformities. I am a very active person and I've had to stop all my activities like working out, skydiving, sports etc.  There's a lot of literature out there which describes development of kyphosis and scoliosis immediately after injury, but I was wondering if it's possible to develop it many years after injury. If anyone has any insights that would be great.


  • Omg. I thought I was young to be having such issues and I am in my forties. I have done a lot of research on this subject because I am battling with traumatic kyphosis and now multiple osteoporosis fractures. I believe it is possible for problems to develop later. I urge you to get yourself checked out because this is not something you want to take any chances with.
