hi,

thank you for providing the brief history of you.

A thorough clinical examination is advised.

As after any fall there should be a thorough clinical examination done and also the x-ray but since it is not done I am really unhappy by the approach.

Well, as per your symptoms what you mentioned I feel there is some Sacroiliac joint issue or may be spondylolisthesis. Only taking an MRI scan we can come closer to the diagnosis. As you mentioned that post walking a couple of distance your pain is eased I feel this should be case of spondylolisthesis which gets diagnosed pretty late many of the times. in my clinical practice, as soon as I receive such complaints I advice straight for an MRI as having a proper diagnosis and patient satisfaction to the health management is my first priority.

I will advice you the same to take an MRI.

treatment can be simpler with physical therapy and some specific exercises.

Regards
Jay Indravadan Patel
