Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
An xray of the injured area is necessary to rule out any bony injuries (fractures).
Propably you could have suffered soft tissue contusion
involving the dorsolumbar spinal musculature.
The general treatment guidelines are as follows -
• Rest – Avoid any activity that produces pain for the first 48 to 72 hours after injuring yourself.
• Ice packing – for the first 48 to 72 hours after the injury
. Apply ice wrapped in a damp towel to the injured area for 15 to 20 minutes every two to three hours during the day.
• Medications - Use Aleve or Advil
which will help in reducing pain & inflammation
• Moist heat fomentation - after 48 hours of injury which help in relaxing the muscles and soft tissues.
• Muscle relaxant
gels - Gentle massaging of the painful areas with the gels will provide pain relief.
If your symptoms are relieving with the above measures, consult an orthopedic surgeon for further management .
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
