Thankd for your query.
You had a injury to back for which you took X ray of the spine and found Sina Bifida of S1 vertebra.Spina bifida is a developmental anomaly of the spinous Process of the vertebra.Many a times it is detected as a accidental finding on X-Ray and does not carry any significance.So do not worry .There is no treatment needed for it.
