Linda, thanks for writing.

I believe that a spinal surgeon would be the more appropriate physician to ask about treatments for fractured vertebrae.

Regarding activities to avoid... It would probably be best to avoid direct spinal manipulations to that segment, as well as any vigorous activities that stress that portion of the spine.

Warm wishes,
AT
