The spinal cord extends from the brain down to about l1/l2, and.... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can't: If the bone is deformed, there is nothing short of surgery to restore its shape. Unless markedly deformed, shouldn't even be noticed. Especially in a young spine which is flexible and can accommodate to a slight deformity at one level. Bottom line, don't worry. Recover from the fracture.
