Hello and welcome, Pam.

In your age group, advanced degenerative changes in spine are usually not expected. So if these changes in CT scan are significant and advanced (more than the age related changes); the fall may be connected, contributed and responsible for it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.


I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
