I was told I had a lumbar contusion after falling on stairs. No xrays were taken but I keep feeling a slight popping in that area. Another opinion?

In brief: Get x-ray

I would suggest you get an x-ray.
Even if it's not a fracture, it could be a misalignment. Furthermore, you may have pinched a nerve or slipped a disc which may cause pain in the future.
