Thank you for all the information,Treat of injured vertebra would depend on the severity.In mild cases without impingement on nerve or problem with bladder or bowel movement, conservative approach can be taken.Rest, pain medicines, physiotherapy can help.If those do not help, doctor can decide about surgery.As the pain is severe, you can take an evaluation by a spine specialist or orthopedic surgeon.Cardiologist would be needed to monitor if surgery is required.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
Pain medicine, physiotherapy & conservative measures often help in 80% of cases.
Epidural steroid injection can be used too.
If all those measures do not help, doctor can go for minimally invasive surgery.
