3 weeks ago I slipped and hit my back on

3 weeks ago I slipped and hit my back on a dock. The pain was excruciating an after a week started radiating to the front on the left. I had a massive contusion on my back. The pain is still there and sometimes unbearable. Could it be more than just bruising?

Hi, I fell a week and a half ago going out my garage. I slipped on the first concrete step and missed the other one and landed on my bottom ( feet going out) and went back and hit my back really hard on the concrete step and then my head. My head is fine, but my back is still very sore and some days I cannot get comfortable. I don t think anything is out of place, but just really sore still. Should I be concerned?

I slipped on a plastic lid and fell hitting my mid back on edge of a brick step. Went to ER and was told i had rib contusion. This was two weeks ago and im still in pain..from front ribs to middle of back on right side. Ive been resting but tried playing pool last night and cried myself to sleep i hurt so bad. Wondering why my ribs hurt more than my back does since that is where i made contact with the brick step. can i relieve the pain? Finally...will this be an injury that will haunt me in the future? Thank you.

I recently hurt my back playing golf (6 weeks ago) and the pain was intense and sudden. I was sent for an MRI scan and the results came yesterday showing a compressed fracture of the L1 vertebrae. My doctor has told me to go back to him in 6 weeks but hasn t prescribed any treatment but I am having physio and have been given a set of exercises but these were based on them thinking I had a slipped disc. I am worried the exercise may do more damage.
