Bruised back, painful to touch, crooked spine. Suggestion?

I was in a very bad car accident in 1985 and I walk and keep fit for my now crooked spine but in the past few days it feels as if my mid back area is bruised and tight. Hurts to the touch and it is becoming more constant. I work every day so I can not afford to take time off.. Any suggestions?? Thank you for your time.. :) Alicia

hallo dear friend
was there any fracture in your spine during your car accident
you need to take a fresh x ray of your spine
if any disc space narrowing is there you may need MRI spine
mean while take rest , take some analgesic , hot or cold fomentation
avoid lifting weights
sit with taking support to your back
slowly you can start spine extension exersizes
