Hi everyone, I hope this post finds everyone well and and having a low pain or no pain day...

I am posting this for information for my husband, he has been suffering with low back pain now for months and just recently got his x rays done this is what they found. An old fracture on T5 and the developmental cleft? Does anyone know what this means? I know the fracture is and old break but cant find anything out about the other one.

Any information that you could give would be wonderful, he is suffering so much with this..

Thank you so much!
