A:   Hello
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. As you have compression fracture, so need to take rest, analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief, and calcium supplements.If pain is not relieved by ibuprofen then you need to take strong analgesic such as tramadol after consulting your doctor. Rest is very important for healing. Hope your query get answered.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
