In brief: Follow up to be sure
Trauma to the mid back and flank can result in kidney damage.
However, injuries such as you describe usually result in muscle injury, even when no bruising is visible. See your doctor for an exam and ask for your urine to be checked for blood. If pain persists, worsens or blood appears in the urine, re-evaluation and further testing may be warrented.
