Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
All the findings in the description are not of any serious nature and can be effectively managed conservatively.
The average time required for the healing of the broken spinous/transverse processes is around 8-10 weeks. In the meantime you have to
* use the brace
* avoid lifting weights
* restrict forward bending
* ice packs to alleviate the pain
* once the acute pain subsides, moist heat to relax the muscles
* after about 4 weeks, physiotherapy
of back muscles
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
