Thanks for your query.You had a injury to back and getting severe pain in loin.This is most likely to be due to injury to the muscles and ligaments of the spine.Please get your X-Ray of the Spine done to rule out any bony injury.Take pain killers like Diclomol twice daily and apply Relaxyl gel over injured area gently and take rest for couple of days.You should be alright in weeks time.
