Just one compression fracture? Expect some pain, sharp pain at times with certain movements. Get used to back pain lol.
I had 3 compression fractures and a slipped disc, gnarly injury wakeboarding. Think 22mph and the rope around your back, and your lower body stopping and your upper body twisting. Not fun.
Be patient with PT and DONT see a chiropractor, the mere thought should just make you cringe.
for mine i got 2 Lumbar Epidurals and Fasset joint injections along with a year+ of PT. All while i was 16/17 years old. After recovery i was able to return to play soccer competitively and have been snowboarding. I would reccomend a pro-tec back/spine brace and a pair of red padded shorts for when you return to boarding (Anything to reduce the shock if you land on your ass) and anything to limit and unnecesary rotation/impacts.
Keep your abs strong, tuck your hips when you stand. You'll be ok, just be patient. Any other questions let me know.
Im now 18 out with a torn MCL and Miniscus. Ive done a number on my body already, 4 concussions, torn labrum, MCL, miniscus, and broke my back, and im still goin. theres hope bro!!!
