Brief Answer:
Fracture and collapse of L5 vertebra.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The X-ray report attached is suggestive of a fracture and collapse of L5 vertebra. You need to have a complete bed rest for at least 4 weeks and then use a spine brace to support the spine after you start walking around gradually. Keeping on doing your daily activities can lead to nerve root compression.
Do take a complete bed rest, pain killers and oral muscle relaxants prescribed by your orthopedician. Do not start workout till it is completely healed. Avoid driving or standing for too long.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
