3 compressed disc fractures on back, muscle spasms around waist to back, had a fall. Any ideas?

I had a fall five months ago and experienced three compressed disc fractures in my back. That is now better but I have severe muscle spasms that go around my waist and to my back. They get hard when they spasm. I have been going to physical therapy in a pool twice a week. I have had a bone scan and have had injections on both sides of my back but so far I still have muscle spasms around my upper waist to my back. Any ideas?

Hello.Vertebral fractures cause pain for a long time.
It is normal to still feel pain.
It is important, however, to be periodically examined by a neurosurgeon.
Although initially the surgery was not necessary, if the pain does not decrease, the surgery can be a therapeutic option.
Also you have to take painkillers daily.In my opinion Tramadol 50 mg thrice a day can be taken for treating pain. Please consult your local doctor for a prescription.
I wish you good health.
