Feeling on bruising months after back injury, tightness and inflammation while walking. Will this heal?

Hello, I injured my back doing a trick in gymnastics where i bent my back backwards awkwardly. Still a month later my lower left side of my spine mainly, as well as lower back just abive hip area, when touched has a sensation like its bruised. When i m walking or sitting the rest of my back muscles can hurt and feel tight as well and inflame. Will this ever heal, my doctor told me that i ve strained my ligaments attached to my spine and prescribed some tablets calles naproxen , but has not really helped?

• Anti -inflammatory drugs like Tablet Motrin 1 tablet as and when required
• Avoid forward bending.
