Pain in the lower back after ice tubing injury. x-ray showing a minor crack. Normal MRI. Any treatment needed?

I was tubing on a very icy slope ( very fast) 6 months ago. When I arrived to the bottom of hill my low back hit a very hard object ( I was still on the tube) It pushed me up and I landed again on another hard object. I was not able to walk properly it was so painful. I just walked afew steps to the car and my husband took me to hospital. X-ray didn t show anything except a minor crack. Since then I have done everything ( ice, rest, pain killer, physio, Accuponcher, stretch ... But stil I have pain and my mussels get tender with even walking more than 20 mins. What else remains that I can do? I ve done MRI too but that one was normal too. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for writing to us.
Sometimes a persistent muscle stiffness causes all the pain. In addition to the bed rest and hot fomentation, taking muscle relaxants in combination with appropriate pain killers can help you. You can get these prescribed from your orthopedician.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
