How Long Does a Fractured Vertebrae Take to Heal?

Answer

The length of time that it takes to heal from a fractured vertebrae all depends on the severity of the fracture and how much rest you get. If it is a minor fracture, and you get plenty of rest, it can take only two weeks. If it is a major fracture, and you get plenty of rest, it can take up to 10 weeks to heal.
