How can severe pain due to vertebrae fractures be treated?

My brother has compound vertebrae fratures, , L2-3. His pain is excruciating & only narcotic pain meds help. How can he reduce pain in order to keep moving? He just finished intensive IV antibiotics for a spinal mass & now the fracures have been identified.
