back injury

My daughter, who is 18yrs old, was involved in a car accident 7 months ago. She had a compression fracture at the L1 and three broken ribs at the 11th and 12th. After a week in the hospital and wearing a back brace for three months, she started doing her regular activites and headed off for the second semester of college. She has still been in a lot of pain. One doctor said she needs a posterior spinal fusion at the L1. He says her ligaments are hurt and her vertavra have too much movement.
She is very much into dancing. She is a dance major and plans to dance professionally after college. We want to gather different opinions about what spinal fusion would do to her dancing??

    My husbamd is 79 and has stenosis in his spine. Is there a brace that would help him with walking. I feel a brace would help him walk better and would reduce the pain. Thank you!!!Mrs Earl E Arnold
