In brief: Hairline
Fractures of the spine that are called"hairline" most often relate to injuries of the posterior aspects of the vertebral elements.
Those are usually treated symptomatically, without surgery. Bracing, rest, and pain meds are used first, then eventually physical therapy can be started.
