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.
