In brief: Back injury

Go to er for examination, imaging studies, treatment.
Orthopedic special will probably be involved. Don't try to drive; best to have ambulance take you since friend/family may panic.

In brief: Doctor can evaluate

A person who has a gymnastics back injury and cannot move properly afterwards needs to see the doctor. The safest route to the E.
R. Is by ambulance, because the paramedics can stabilize an injured back, using their special backboard. After x-rays are done, and after the doctors have ruled out an existing or potential spinal cord injury, they will remove the backboard.
