Hello. I hurt my back playing basketball. I bent awkwardly

Hello. I hurt my back playing basketball. I bent awkwardly backwards when I landed, and my back popped. the pain is 6 inches from my waist on the left side of my spine and sometimes goes down into the top of my butt. Its been a week now. If I bend over, I feel tightness to the left of my spine in one distinct area. I have not lifted weights or anything since this happened and have been taking over the counter pain meds and using a heating pad/icy hot.

Hello doctor I am 20 years old and I am In pain in my mid lower left side of my back. I was playing basketball 2 or 3 years ago at a family reunion and I extended my left arm for a dunk and it felt like I over stretched my back muscle it hurt so bad I thought it was locked in gas so I had to sit down at my grandmother house, the pain lightened up over the years and made it bearable but never went away i have been to the hospital for xrays and they said nothing was wrong(2 times or more). Im really concerned because I cant enjoy my activities knowing that it hasn t went away

Hello. I am an active 40 y/o female and hurt my lower back 3 weeks ago playing roller derby. When I bent down I was stuck and could not stand straight. Later my torso seemed contorted and my left hip bone looks higher. I went to the chiropractor 4 times and immediately after have some improvement. Ibuprofen helps the pain, but nothing helps the limited movement. I cannot stand normally nor can I walk normally. Everything feels tight and crooked.
