In brief: Rest
Easy walking, calcium and vitamin d, avoid heavy lifting, walking every day, and try to stand up straight.

In brief: Depends
It depends on the type and location of the fracture and the age of the patient.
Often times, wearing a brace and avoiding strenuous activities will allow a compression fracture to heal in younger patients. In the elderly, if these measures fail, a kyphoplasty may be an option. Check out spine-health.Com.
