hello, i've already posted question regarding schmorl's node in inferior end plate of T12 L1,
and yo advised rest as the management ,
patient(FEMALE 35 YEARS) 've PAIN disturbing her, and has been prescribed analgesics by orthopaedician,
can yo tell me How long she 'll need to take analgesic?
WILL t pain be present throughtout life?
Should any activities to be avoided to prevent further progression of schmorl's node?
WILL it led to any complications?
NSAIDs should never be taken in a continuous way and can be taken intermittently.
Physical examination shows tenderness directly over the involved vertebrae.
The Schmorl's nodes symptom are self limiting and usually does not require extensive treatment. A careful rehabilitation program consisting of an initial rest period followed by a gradual return to full activity should be attempted and the pain will not stay all the while in most of the cases.
Surgery is the last option and rarely indicated. Herniations of the intervertebral disc through the vertebral end plate are the reason for symptoms and for future safety follow proper ergonomics and avoid any trauma.
