Hello and thank you for your question.
Did she have any bruising after the fall in her lower back?
Given her age and history of arthritis it may take time to heal the injury that she has due to the fall.
None noted. Her right fore arm had two skin tears and her upper back also hurt initially.
okay. It would take at least two to three weeks for the injury to heal.
She needs to apply moist heat compress and take medication regularly for at least two weeks for speedy recovery.
If she develops a muscle spasm than she would need PT and muscle relaxants.
Thank you very much. It is what I had suspected, but needed verification.
Please rate my answer positively if you have no further questions. Thank you.
