    Suggest treatment for back injury

Last Friday I fell off an obstacle on an obstacle course about roughly 6ft tall and I landed on my back and hit my head on the ground. When I got up my back hurt and I was dizzy and at first everything looked like tunnell vision. I had a headache for a bit after that but it went away. I have a history of sciatica and my lower back had been hurting minimal before the fall but now my lower back, reaching up to below my ribs on the right side and inbetween my shoulder blades hurts alot and is hard to move. as well as having a sharp pain near my tail bone. I am a 21 year old female in the Army.

Hi
Welcome to healhcaremagic
After going through your query I concluded that you are having acute backache. Cause of it likely to be disc prolapse or muscular pain along with coccyxdynia. Its treatment is rest and analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Position of resting is rest in lateral position with both hip and knee flexed. Mecobalamin is helpful in recovery. Hot sits bath is helpful in reducing coccyxdynia. You can discuss with your Doctor about it. Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then please don't hesitate to write to us. I will be happy to help you.
Wishing you a good health. Take care.
