Backache for 25 years,hair line fracture in 50 year old
Hi, my mom has been suffering from backache for 25 years and doc has said that there is a Hair line fracture . My mom is now 50. Do you think this hair line fracture can be cured taking into consideration her age. Also, if it could be done, how long will it take
If it really is a hairline fracture, then it will heal up fine within a few weeks. I am doubtful of how this was diagnosed. Just take simple pain killers for this. Otherwise, if pain worsens, an MRI scan is advised.
