Denny CAN recover, if he is given enough time to heal. I had the exact same injury, 12 years ago.
It was the most painful thing that I ever experienced, and it happened in a car crash. Compression fracture of the L1 vertebrae. If he isn’t rushed back into a racing car too soon, he can heal up and lead a normal life, including racing. At least it happened to him when he was younger than I was, so he may heal up a bit quicker. After 12 years, I still feel NO back pain from my injury. Don’t let ANYBODY rush you into a race car. It may take 2-3 MONTHS before you feel normal again, but take your time. A back injury is nothing to mess around with. You will lose muscle tone, due to the lack of physical activity, so you will have to do some exercises to get back into shape in about 2 months or so. Hopefully, there is no disc or nerve damage, that is probably the biggest fear. I had to wear the “turtle shell” back brace for about a month and a half. Hang in there Denny, I think you will be fine. You still have a lot of years left to race and live.
