According to the internet (not the best source in the world, but I, like most of the people on this board, am not a doctor) :

The alternative is to be nursed in the recumbent position for at least 6 weeks for soft-tissue healing, followed by bracing worn whenever the individual is sitting or standing for several additional months, or until the fractures have healed.
Looking into this, seeing him with some sort of brace would've been an interesting obstacle, perhaps one of the things preventing him from making the climb. Either way, people saying he recovered way too fast should've maybe looked into a little bit more. It's a debilitating injury, yes, but it can be recovered from. Plus, if I recall correctly, wasn't there some chiropractor who said that Bruce's treatment and recovery wasn't entirely impossible?

If any character has ever earned the right to enjoy a happy retirement, it is Bruce Wayne. Nolan ought to be commended for caring enough about the character and believing enough in his own vision to provide a definitive, satisfying ending to the story of an ordinary man who turned tragedy into the motivation to accomplish something extraordinary.
