Muscularly traumatic blow on lower back, nothing broken. Why hurting more than other impacts?

When a person has a muscularly tramatic blow to their lower back/hip and nothing is broken, why would it hurt more than other impacts? I hit that area on some ice while snowboarding. I had xrays and a cat scan but nothing showed up. I have a high pain tolerance and am concerned because of the level of pain I m feeling. I m really just looking for an explanation as to why I might be feeling so much more extreme pain than other falls I have taken. Thank you for your time

Thanks for posting your query.
From description it seems that you had developed muscular or ligamentous strain over lower back as xrays are normal. Take proper rest. Avoid forward bending and weight lifting. Applying muscle relaxant gel will be helpful.
Hooe this will helps you.
