What is causing the sharp pain in my hip?

I was working out and I fell backwards onto the ground from an elevated area (5ft fall) . There was a metal pole that my left lower back fell on and I hit my head, which caused a medical concussion that a doctor verified. Now, when I move my left hip or even slightly switch positions I have an extremely sharp pain in the inside of my hip. Could this be bruise or something else. Also, where my left lower back hit the metal pole a laceration formed and also tissue damage caused a lump in my back

hi,

thanks for providing the brief history of you.

as you mentioned you had contusion and have been treated for the same. Also, have you undergone any MRI or CT of your lower back since the injury was directly on to the region of the pole. also have there been any x-ray take for the hip region.

usually the nature of the mentioning may be due to the nerve getting pinch either by the gluetus muscle or may be at the spinal level. For the confirmation of it an MRI is advise.

post that , a physical therapy is advised and you will be put on a mild to moderate exrrcises which will help you strengthen the muscles and within a short time . All you need to focus is to strengthen the muscles.

with the grace of God I Wish you a good health.

regards
