Possibly: If you fell heavily onto your buttocks, you could easily have caused bruising and then stiffness in your back and hip region. It should ease up quickly. Taking an anti inflammatory such as Ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) can help with the healing. Also use a heating pad. Had the injury only just occurred ice would have helped.
