back pain after a fall?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Craig Morton
17 years experience Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
Sprain/Strain: There are many potential causes of low back pain after a fall. The most common are sprain/strain injuries. Usually acute back or hip pain will improve over 1-2 weeks with anti-inflammatories, gentle streching, and use of heat/ice. If your pain does not improve or gets worse you should contact your physician.
