I had a bad fall and my lower back locked on me. Now I have purple, reddish spots on skin in the same place it's locked. What is that?

In brief: Bruise?

Is it like a bruise? Could be secondary to fall and a bruise, local hematoma.
Or have you put heating pad on it or some muscle cream, gel that you reacted to locally?
