Hello and welcome to HCM,

Falls on ground are associated with body pains which may last for a couple of days.
Hot fomentation, alagesics, and topical preparation containing analgesic and serratiopeptidase are commonly used for the pain associated with injury.
If there are any open wounds on the body they need to dressed.
If there is any evidence of infection, antibiotics should be taken.
Bed rest for some days need to be taken.
It may take a couple of days before the symptoms disappear completely.

Thanks and take care

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

The blunt injury due to fall might have caused soft tissue concussion of the muscles.

So whenever an injured muscle stretches (during body movements), it produces severe pain. This is generally self limiting and usually resolves within 10 days by the following means -

* Use analgesic to suppress the acute pain
* Muscle relaxant gel applications
* Moist heat fomentation to soothen the tight muscles
* Rest to the involved part by avoiding certain movements that causes pain
* Physiotherapy -should be done once the acute pain has subsided to strengthen the muscles

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
