A member asked:

Can a 31 year old male go back to work when he fractured l3 fused l4 l5 spine work normal movement and ?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Hopefully: After healing, the bone should get back to normal strength. Recovery from a spine fracture and back surgery depends on the degree of injury, your own healing process, determination in rehabilitation, luck, and what type of work and activity you are trying to get back to!! I have patients who have returned to full normal activity in physically demanding jobs, but others were not able to. Good luck!
