Cervical spine xray straigthng. Small osteophytes in lower cervical spine?
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
This is not : The same as a compression fracture. A compression fracture can result in anterior wedging, but not all anterior wedging is compression fracture. If there are up to 3 consecutive vertebral bodies with anterior wedging, then it may represent scheuermann's kyphosis which is a congenital osteodystrophy, that lead to vertebrae appearing wedged. Fracture is less likely given your age. See a specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

12 rib bearing thoracic vertebrae w vestigial bilateral twelth ribs. Mild scoliosis convex left t2-3. Minim t7 vertebral ant wedging? Meaning?
It does NOT: Appear to be indicating there is too much to worry about. The first sentence in your question is a normal finding. Mild scoliosis, is nothing to worry about, given there is less chance of it progressing since you are done growing. T7 wedging may represent a normal finding -- possibly a congenital osteodystrophy, which lead to the vertebra not appearing like a cube. See a spine specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the question: You have not asked a question. See a rheumatologist or orthopedist for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
Yes.: That is the most common cause.Get a more detailed answer ›
Many problems: The fact that 3 muscles attach to the fifth metatarsal ( the peroneals) and that the fracture is displaced can cause an imbalance in these muscles and a non-healing fracture of that metatarsal. The peroneus longus passes under the cuboid- this muscle stabilizes the inner foot in gait and this crush fracture can cause problems with walking-- you should see your podiatrist for reconstruction. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally
do u think cast will heel up?
Probably: Fortunately the cuneiforms are pretty rigid with alot of soft tissue/capsular attachment that help form the midfoot. A cast should help to allow things to heal and ossify. This may predispose you to some midfoot pain/arthritis as you get older. A good arch support may help longterm. I'd let your orthopod determine if cast or boot or postop shoe is appropriate w/o seeing films. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Preserved lumbar lordosis without lumbar compression fracture or listhesis.That mean a fracture ?
It means the image : Was interpreted as normal. Ther was no abnormality seen. ...Read more
Hard to say: Lumbar spondylosis is another way to say you have developed some degenerative changes in your spine. This can certainly potentially cause back and leg pain, but is somewhat of a non specific diagnosis. If pain persists, a detailed exam and appropriate studies can usually pinpoint the cause. Thank you for the question. ...Read more
I have bone spurs on my spine, moderate scoliosis, thoracic spine, kyphosis, osteoporis and osteoarthritis. I have continued back pain , pain in my hip?
Scoliosis back pain: There are many causes for back and hip pain, sometimes not as obvious as the curve in your spine on x-ray. Get a good evaluation 2 see if your spine is truly the problem causing the pain. Often, buttock-type hip pain comes from l4-s1, but groin hip pain comes from the hip joint itself and has nothing to do with the spine, even if the pictures look bad. Good docs can find ur true pain source. Thx! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not healing yet: This sounds like a complicated fracture. Callus is what we look for to show signs of healing. It varies in time before it becomes visible on an X-ray . Depending on when this happened would help explain the findings. As always talk to your orthopedist. Good luck ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing. A fracture means a break in the cortex or the strong layer of outer bone cells. In an adult the average time for that to heal varies greatly but is often considered to ...Read more
