In brief: Take it easy

Most spine fractures will heal within 3 months with bracing, limiting strenuous activity and close follow-up with a spine specialist.
Some fractures require surgical stabilization and kyphoplasty is an option for elderly patients with compression fractures. Check out spine-health.Com.
