Hello and thanks for the query
Firstly I want to know that how you or your doctor know that whether compression is cure or not. Have you done MRI or X-ray. If not than go for MRI dorsolumber spine. It will clear all the picture of the injury whether cured or not.
Secondly that you have any symptoms like pain on walking or changing posture or numbness in any area below lumber region. If symptoms are present than you need a complete bed rest till the symptoms subsides and go for MRI scan.
You can take analgesic and calcium supplements for better healing. Wear lumbosacral belt.
Hope this will help you.

usually exercise alone does not cause wedge compressions of the vertebra, unless u are osteoporotic i.e. ur bones are not very thin or weak. so get a bonedensitometry and a serum D3 levels done. and if it is creating a lot of pain u may undergo percutaneous vertebroplasty,
