Thanks for writing to us.
After prolonged bed rest for fracture vertebra, musle around spine get weakened. Now you need physiotherapy in form of back exercises to strengthen the muscle of back. Do these exercises under guidence of your physiotherapist.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
