t8 compression fracture

september 2011 i was hit by a car and suffered a t8 compression fracture. i was wondering if any one else has had the same injury? as i have a very active life style being 21 and in the army. I am ment to go back to afghan in october so hopefully i will be fully healed.
if you have had this injury did you ever recover fully?

Re: t8 compression fracture

I have never had a spinal fracture myself but did run a rehab unit about 45 years ago for a couple of parachute regiments and were never short of spinal patients. I don't suppose compression fractures are any differrent nowadays. We can presume it was not a "burst" fracture or you would have neurological changes and would not contemplate a tour of duty to the Kyber pass. Ours all did well that I remember and returned to full duty. Mind you Paras are tougher than most!
