Treatment Options For Old, Healed Compression Fractures Becoming Symptomatic

Does anyone have any insights into treatment options for compression fractures that healed, but are now becoming symptomatic? I had 3 compression fractures in my spine when I was 13 due to trauma (T2-T4), and they healed and I was fine for a long time, but now I have chronic pain and my posture/spine feels like its slowly becoming messed up. I'm about to turn 21. From everything I've read, it seems like once you get compression fractures, unless you get a kyphoplasty or a spinal fusion to stabilize it or something like that, you will have long term problems, especially if you had multiple ones like I did.
