Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern look the broken vertebrae is the serious kind of orthopedic injury and this could give the neurological symptoms if you do not have such symptoms then why to worry what I learnt that this might not be fracture, in my pinion you need to see the orthopedic surgeon, hope this information helps you take care and have a nice day.
