What is the treatment for back pain?

hello yesterday I slipped on concrete stairs and landed on my right kidney. i couldnt breathe for a while and lost my vision for about 2 minutes. however i am fine now. today, however, i can barely walk as my back hurts a lot, especially my kidneys. how do i know if i damaged my kidneys and what is the best treatment? could i have fractured my bone or something?

In my opinion you need not to worry about the kidneys untill you get some blood in urine or no urine at all. For you back all you need to do is give it a little rest. For immediate relief have some pain killer along with a muscle relaxant and have proper bed rest for a week or so. Do not lie down on soft mattress use hard one instead, do not sit for longer durations and do not travel long distance for 2 weeks . You can also apply some good anti inflammatory pain killer gel on your back. If the pain increases do some hot fermentation locally. After 2 weeks start with some back strengthening exercise. It will help you build you back muscle and you will be able to continue with your daily routine work in few days with no pain.
Good luck
