In brief: Many considerations

Treatment for an L1 compression fracture depends on the severity of compression and if there is any neurologic compromise or bone fragments extruded into the spinal canal.
A minor wedge compression fracture is always treated nonoperatively. Treatment of the underlying osteoporosis is an important medical condition, and can be addressed by the primary care physician or orthopedic specialists.
