T11 Vertebrae Fracture
Bony structure under medial malleolus bilaterally, no pain w/ compression, tibial nerve is palpable, mild flat foot.Could it be misaligned calcaneus?
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

Till what age does wrist circumference increase? 20, wrist size 6.7 inches,height 173 cm, ankle 8.9 inches.
Varies somewhat: The mechanism by which the circumference of the wrist increases includes the growth of the bones that make up the wrist, the joint spaces in the wrist, and also the soft tissues of the wrist as well. Bone growth in males can vary quite a bit anywhere usually between 14 and 21. Muscle and tendon size vary with use. Even elderly patients can have increase in wrist circumference due to arthritis. ...Read more
Ganglion cyst: The cause of ganglion cysts is not known. One theory suggests that trauma causes the tissue of the joint to break down forming small cysts, which then join into a larger, more obvious mass. The most likely theory involves a flaw in the joint capsule or tendon covering (sheath) that allows the joint tissue to bulge out. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Is it normal to have occasional pain on top of foot where leg meets foot after a sprained ankle? 8 days after. Ankle x-Ray didn't show fracture.
X-ray results showed- advanced L5-S1 degenerative disc disease, moderate facet in lower lumbar spine, L5-S1 4mm retrolistnesis and moderate sclerosis ?
Worn down: L5-S1 is the lowest motion segment in the spine. The MRI shows that level has become "worn down" leading to degeneration of the disc and the facet joints, sclerosis, and a slight slippage (retro listless) of one vertebrae on the other. Don't hesitate to be seen. Many good treatment options available. ...Read more

Back pain: You are describing low back arthritis in terms of an MRI of the lumbar spine. Low back pain can be generated from degenerated or torn discs, nerve impingement from herniated discs, and inflammed or degenerated joints (facet) that connect one segment of the spine with an adjacent segment. Reducing or eliminating low back pain involves physical therapy, injections, and possibly surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Two disc herniations 1 pinching C8 ddd canal stenosis and severe carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. Which is causing severe hand numbness 3yrs ?
Likely carpal tunnel: Both have overlap within the hands depending upon the distribution. MRI is necessary of cervical spine and in many cases if distribution is not distinct, further an EMG/Nerve conduction study to delineate. In most cases however, it is more likely the carpal tunnel is the culprit. Consultation/examination by a neurosurgeon would be most appropriate for diagnosis. ...Read more

Yes: Yes, a fractured vertebrae can "heal itself". The question is rather is it in good alignment that it we heal without chronic pain resulting from it, and is there anything about the nature of the injury that would put you at risk for neurological sequela. For that we would need to examine you directly and look at the scans of your specific fracture. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Fractured t10 vertebrae 8 months ago. No degree of healing on X-rays. Bone density tested but I'm only 25. Is there other possibilities as to why?
A traumatic: fracture can occur with normal bone density. Did you have significant trauma? Patients with abnormally low bone density are at risk for stress and insufficiency fractures, but anyone can get a fracture from trauma. Once a vertebral body sustains a compression fracture, it never regains its normal height. It will heal maintaining the compression deformity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was in a car accident 6 weeks a go and suffered compression fractures on T11 and T12. Is it normal to still be in pain?
Yes: It can take months for that to improve. Rarely someone could have chronic pain develop from this. Usual treatment for these (thousands in our group): wear a brace for three months with x-rays and then to obtain final upright x-rays at three months out of the brace (often with bending the spine views also) to make sure no abnormal alignment has developed that may need surgery, which is rare. ...Read more
On 4/12/16 I fractured T9,T11, T12,L1. The VA did nothing. Still intense pain & now they suggest P.T. Outside Dr said kyphoplasty. Will PT work?
Depends : It really is based upon the specific cause of your pain. If you had multiple vertebral fractures in April, 2016; they should be well healed by now. Kyphoplasties are usually not considered an option in fractures over 6 months for the reason that by then they are usually healed. You need to be evaluated for the exact cause of your pain, then you can choose best options for you. ...Read more
How much longer for my T11 fractured rib to heal? It has been almost 2.5 years and I don't know how to speed this up. X-ray showed healing normally.
2.5 years?: Did you really mean 2 and one half years? If it has not healed by now, it is not likely to heal on its own unless something is done. Even a very silly healing fracture would have healed by now. This is a nonunion and not a delayed Union. Talk to your doctor about other options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
