In brief: Most helpful
Especially if ordered by your physician, physical therapy (pt) is very important for healing from many injuries including broken backs.
If being done on your own, it is critical to ask what kinds of exercises and activities are safe. The more stable the fracture (the less it can move), the safer therapy can be. If surgery was needed, pt almost always needed to regain function.
