Fall on coccyx, causing breathing trouble, have pain since, taking inflammatory, acupuncture. Anything else needed?

Hi I had a snowboard fall landing on my coccyx from a 2 metre jump in the air, my whole spine ricochet winding me not being able to breath for a short time. It has been 6 weeks now, I feel pain everday usually in the morning is at its worst. I ve been taking some nuerofen/ inflammatories for pain and doing acupucture frequently. Can you suggests anything to speed and restore recovery mode? I just got an xray it says minimal loss of lordosis is suggestive of muscle spasms. Minimal anterolithesis of L5. Minor degenaerative changes involve lower facet joint . Minimal marginal lipping is seen at several levels paricular L3, 4 and 5. What does this mean ? and is this serious?

Feb 2014

Thanks for posting your query

According to your x-ray finding you might be suffering from degenerative arthritis with soft tissue injury occurred 6 weeks ago.

Now I suggest you to take hot saline fomatation And back stretching and strengthening exercises.
Avoid forward bending.

Visit an orthopaedic surgeon if pain radiates to lower limb & tingling & numbness occurs in lower limbs.
