Fell and hit back, throbbing pain in shoulder and back. Took Ibuprofen and heat packs. Is it long term damage?

Hi, I landed really badly today at work, only a couple of feet but I was so winded and in so much pain that I could hardly breath and rolled on the floor. Took me a good 15 mins to recover but my back is still throbbing now in between my shoulder blades. Bath, heat pack and ibuprofen have been taken. Have I done long term damage?
