Back injury, vomiting, bruised. What may be wrong?

My 6-year old daughter was crouching when a playmate pushed her hard, so my daughter fell on her lower back, hitting a concrete block in the process. When she got home, a bruise in the affected area is already visible. She said it hurts so much then she told me that she feels like vomiting. And vomit she did. It happened 2 times, with an interval of about 10 minutes. I'm keeping an eye on her, see if there's going to be another vomiting episode.
I'm worried that maybe, she had a very serious fall.
Thank you for your help,
Aileen Roque

thanks for writing to us.
I would suggest to consult ER. please rule out any abdominal injury? where is the bruise? is it in the lateral flanks? Back injury usually does not cause vomiting. Check her pulse and blood pressure. Keep a close watch and if still feeling nauseated with increased heart rate then get her to ER as quickly. Thanks.
