In brief: No

That is bad advice.
You should not be confined to bed - you will become weak and the healing will be affected. First, find a new doctor. Second, ask about physical therapy or kyphoplasty (a fairly quick surgical procedure). Depending on the severity, one or the other may be indicated.
