Wow...not a huge one either. Scary to think a "small" jump can go so big wrong.

Tell you what though, there are comments in the thread about "only" a herniated disc. From experience, I would rather have a fractured vertebrae than a herniated disc. I have a herniated L4-L5. No cure, doesn't ever get better. My back hurts every day. Dawn to dawn, including when I sleep. Advil helps, lortab is better, don't let it limit me other than being scared to jump much more than a little.

Friend of mine broke his back, X-ray looks a LOT like yours. He was in a clamshell for 4 months, rehab a couple months after that, and he's all better. 100%.

This may sound odd, but be happy it's a broken bone! The only hard part will be getting strength back in time for next season.

Get well soon!
