Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

Sadly, TB of the spine (pott's spine) result in degenerative changes in the spine, resulting in damage of the spine. Even afte complete treatment of the spine, many patients experience pain and complications.

In my opinion I would advise you to first visit your treating doctor, and assess the condition of your spine, if serious, surgery can be an option; if not pain management medication could be advised along with calcium and vitamin D supplementation.

If all this does not help, you could visit a chiropractor or even go in for physiotherapy.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
