Injured Vertebra

Hi. I injuried my 8th th (or is it ph ? Can’t read the document right)vertebra due to log lifting and deadlifting 2 weeks ago (realised it was an injury 3 days ago). I visited an ortophedist and he said I had a “deformed” vertebra and i shouldn’t lift heavy with my back.
Anyone experienced similar injuries ? Advice on how to handle them ? Thanks in advance.

“Deformed” like a congenital anomaly like only having one pedicle or a hemivertebra? Or was it a fracture? Please be a little more specific.
