Pain while moving and standing after a back injury. Painful spine. Need immediate recovery

I fell backwards out of a moving van and landed on my back on the left side, very high on the glute and on the kidney area. I have sharp pain when I move and constant pain when stationary. Also on the left side of my spine is also very painful. How can I decrease recovery time. I go back to work Monday and I ll have to run for P.T.

Spine Surgeon 's  Response
Thanks for the query. Soft tissue injury at times quite severe and may take time to recover. First of all its important to rule out any significant spinal injury. Initial treatment for soft tissue injury is giving rest to the part. In your case at least one or two days of complete rest. Along with that try some pain medicine, muscle relaxant, local gel and ice pack application. Also avoid prolong standing or sitting in one position for a week.I hope you will get better soon. However If symptoms persist then I would suggest to consult a local physician.Thanks.
