In brief: Weight bear as tol.
Since you can not put the sacrum in a cast (it's above the tailbone) only time can heal a sacral fracture.
Weight bearing as tolerated is the best treatment. Of concern is there a diagnosis of osteoporosis due to menopause, low testosterone or high blood calcium (parathyroid adenoma) ? A work-up may be needed.
