Discomfort in lower back due to falling down. How to speed up healing process ?

Two weeks ago I fell on my lower back. No bruising appeared but it is causing a lot of discomfort still and I still have to be careful when laying down, sitting or bending over. If I do too much, it becomes a throbbing pain. I suspect only bruising but it is uncomfortable and quite frustrating. Anything I can do to speed up the healing process? Thank you
