T9 Shows Mild Central Compression Deformity
Mri of t spine yesterday. Show mild disc height loss at t9-t10. Sm schmorl node involving inferior veterbel body. Warrant pain under right shoulder?
Not likely: This level (t9-10) would tend to give pain a little lower than that. Look at this map, it shows you where the nerves "hook" to in the skin. http://www.backpain-guide.com/chapter_fig_folders/ch06_path_folder/ch06_images/06-4%20radiculopathy.jpg. ...Read more
MRI shows small central disc osteophytic complex at t8-t9 for other issue. Then Car accident in June causing severe pain in back, neck, shoulder and radiates to chest. Should I get another MRI? Current doctor wont send me.
If you are having severe symptoms of pain following a car accident, further workup
Should be considered. Among those possible studies would be an MRI or ct scan. You certainly would not rely on findings on an MRI done before your injury to explain why you are having pain from your injury. ...Read more

Call doctor: I believe that a simple phone call to your physicians office or to his nurse on call maybe all that is needed as opposed to going and sitting in an emergency room for anywhere between 4 and 12 hours. You are already being given potent analgesics. What may need to be added from your description is a stool softener or recommendation to increase fiber in your diet. Good luck to you. ...Read more

MRI scan result- subtle change to centre of spinal cord t8, t9, t10. What could this be? 30yr old female
What does this all mean please? Ct scan 1: "bone window images show a mixed lytic and sclerotic lesion in the body of t9"
This means there is an area in the 9th thoracic body (mid back) which has areas which are lower density (lytic) and higher density (sclerotic) than normal bone at that location.
There are many reasons for this appearance. A thoracic spine MRI of this area, probably with and without contrast, may be helpful. ...Read more
8 year old begin complaining of back pain and xray shows 11 degrees of levoscoliosis of thoracolumbar spine from approximately T9 through L3?
Cause or effect ??: Mild scoliosis as described will not generally cause pain.However,pain can cause a kid to splint or twist toward the direction of pain & produce an x-ray with that appearance. A history and exam could better reveal the importance of this finding. If it is true scoliosis at 8 it is worrisome as it usually worsens in the pre-teen/teen years if it is not treated. ...Read more

My thoracic MRI shows protruding disc impinging and flattening the left ventral cord with diffuse spinal atrophy from T4 - t9. I have upper-mid back pain, cannot sit. What does MRI indicate?
This sounds like a herniated disc and/or degenerative disc disease which can cause severe back pain especially while sitting. This is more common in the lumbar spine but can be present anywhere in the spine.
You should definitely have your MRI looked at by a spine specialist. ...Read more

I had 2 ribs cut during surgery for T8 & T9. Now 4 months post, he lower rib is not smooth like the other & I still have pain. Normal? Heal time?
Here are some...: I perceived what you've experienced over the 4 months after a surgery requesting cut-off of T8 & 9 ribs, has been not that bad at all; apparently you've coped with it reasonably well. The process of postoperative healing is forever but completed by 70-90 % by the time of one year yet with variable pace among individuals. So, give time & patience to run & see as long as getting better slowly-surely ...Read more

82y/old f. Post fall. #t9. 2wks in hosp, now rehab. Has brace. What exercises are appropriate? How long can she sit up? Any restrictions ?
See below: It takes about 3 months for this type of fracture to heal. Generally at this stage in an 82 year old, the most we will do for exercise is walking. She will want to wear the brace and avoid flexing (bending forward) the spine. Extension (bending backward) is usually ok. Sitting during the first couple of weeks is usually dictated by pain tolerance. Make sure you check with the treating doctor. ...Read more
What does hypertrophic change at the T9-T10 facets bilaterally -severe left, moderate right osseous neural foraminal stenosis mean? Lots of pain
Cause for back pain.: It means your main nerves coming from your spine that run through your vertebrae can be suffering of compression because overgrowth of the bony area is squeezing it/them.The pain is caused by the nerve itself that might be irritated by contact with the vertebra.Nerves transmit sensation so pain is triggered this way. F/u with your doctor to create a plan of action for treatment. ...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
