If it is a mild crack in the vertebrae or spinal bones, they usually heal with proper immobilisation of the part. Probably a brace. If the crack is large the Doctors would have operated long ago. You may wait for 6-8 weeks for healing but do as your Orthopaedician says. Get his opinion on the treatment in your case.
