In brief: Time
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.

In brief: Approx 6-8 weeks
Bone is bone. It takes on avaerage 6-8 weeks for bone in any part of the body to heal.
There are reasons why bone healing can be delayed but in a healthy person 6-8 weeks.
