Does a cervical compression fracture of c7 t1 heal completely?

C Spine Fracture

Forearm_fractures
Most spine fractures will heal with rest and spine support (brace). Ligament injury or fracture fragment compression on the spinal cord or nerve roots may require surgical decompression with or without stabilization. Consultation with a specialist in cervical spine injuries is indicated as misdiagnosis can lead to neurologic deficit.

Can you tell me how can they fix a c7 t1 herniated disc pinching a c8 nerve root, lots of pain in hands and arms?

Yes

Nerve
three possibilities , one is anterior neck fusion, second is an artificial disk replacement , third is a posterior discectomy. All outpatient surgeries. The best procedure for you is dependent on the cause and the ability of the surgeon.

This may vary based

on the size of the surgical incision but a minimum of 8 weeks, ideally 12 weeks with post op rehabilitation but discuss this with your surgeon as he may be doing the procedure with a minimally invasive technique which may allow for quicker activity resumption .

Dr. Joseph Accurso answered:

My 16 year old son has a c7 t1 compression fracture will he have problems and have to be extra careful the rest of his life ?

How did it happen?

Forearm_fractures
If it is due to trauma, once it has completely healed, the likely future issues would be with degenerative joint disease, or neck "arthritis", which would probably occur sooner because of the trauma. If due to another cause, more details of that cause are needed. Please speak with your doctor or a spine specialist for more detail.

Lateral views limited do to overlap w/shoulders C6/7 & C7/T1 suboptimally visualized. straigtenein of lordotic curv of cerv spine?

Xray interpretation

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Sounds like they dont see the base of your neck because your shoulders are in the way. COMMON. Straightening lordotic curve is almost always from spasm of the muscles. Doesn't your doctor explain any of this?? (rhetorical question)

Dr. David Trettin answered:

C7-T1 there is a right lateral recess disc protrusion mildly indenting the right ventral cervicothoracic cord. What does this mean?

Disc rupture

Herniated_disk
This MRI report suggests that your disc between C7 and T1 has ruptured and some disc ' materiel' is pressing on the the front of the spinal cord.I would suggest seeing an orthopedic or neurosurgeon for evaluation fairly soon. Good Luck!

Pateint with anterolithiasis C7/T1 and C4-6 anterior spinal fixation, how regularly would you have to follow up with c-spine xrays? monthly? yearly?

Depends

Poor_balance
If you are not having any problems with your neck or neurological issues (numbness, tingling, weakness, balance problems, loss of hand dexterity), no x-rays are needed. If you are having issues, see your spinal specialist (the one who did the surgery), your PCP, or another spinal specialist (if you are no longer seeing the surgeson).

Speak to surgeon

Sounds as if your symptoms were improved after surgery and have now come back. Please speak to your surgeon to see if you need re-imaging. Good luck!
