Suggest cure for back pain caused by a fall

I had a fall on Sunday in the bathroom and I still have pain in the back near the spine. There is no pain in the bones but seems to be a sharp pain in that area. I am taking Diclofenac tabs and applying gel. But the pain doesnot subside. I have difficulty sitting down and getting up.

Hi
Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query.During fall on back you can possibly get a muscle strain or ligament sprain of back or a vertebral injury like disc bulge.An examination with orthopedician will give clue for that and a X ray followed by MRI if needed of Lumbosacral spine should be done to confirm that. I usually prescribe NSAIDs like Aceclofenac muscle relaxants like Thiocolchicoside and neurotropic drugs for my patients with such condition.After a rest of short duration of 4-5 days i advise physiotherapy also.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
