LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Elizabeth Taylor, hospitalized after breaking a bone in her back, has begun physical therapy but is expected to remain in hospitalized up to five more days, her publicist said.

``Her spirits are excellent,″ spokesman Warren Cowan said Monday. ``She’s starting to walk. Her pain is under control.″

Miss Taylor, 67, was injured in a fall at her Bel Air home Thursday night. She suffered a compressive fracture of the 12th thoracic vertebra.

Miss Taylor has had health problems in recent years, including a broken back and lengthy recuperation from hip surgeries. She had brain surgery in 1997 to remove a benign tumor.
