In brief: Axial Load

When you fell onto your knees, the force may have been transmitted to the back.
I would recommend an evaluation with your doctor to see if you need treatment to the back for your pain.

In brief: Why back pain

The problem is essentially that the ankle bone is connected to the lower leg bone, which is connected to the thigh bone, which is connected to the pelvis, which is connected to the lumbar spine.
When you jar one (as in a fall), you jar them all. It is not uncommon. Treatment is the same: antiinflammatories and heat. Very unlikely that you would need a spine x-ray.
