Several options: these fractures won't heal on their own, some surgeons will plate them to form a fusion, but most will answer like you mentions. Braces for,the low back can help, maintaining core strength, tight abs, limit belly fat, use good posture and lifting technique. Try topical pain meds as well, patch of diclofenac will stay over affected areas, and pain meds when needed.
