Fell on the icy sidewalk, lower back, upper thighs hurt. Suggestions ?

I fell on the icy sidewalk about a week ago. I landed flat on my behind. My legs just slipped out from under me. Not my lower back and upper thighs really hurt, especially when I bend. There is no bruise visible. It feels a little better than it did, but it s still very painful after almost a week. Any suggestions?

From history it appears that you might be having strain on back muscles and muscles gone into spasm giving riseto this problem.
Take analgesic, muscle relaxant medicines for 2-3 days.
Apply some analgesic cream locally.
Ok and take care.
