This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
As long as you are able to stand and walk, there is not likely any hip bone fracture.
If there is no buttock numbness or spreading numbness and tingling along the legs, there is not likely vertebral fracture either.
Significant muscle contusion is likely from such fall.
You should ice the area 10 minutes every 3 hours for next 48 hours.
Then you can alternate with heat as well.
You can gently massage topical IcyHot or bengay 3-4 times daily.
You can try over the counter naproxen 2 tabs twice daily for pain relief.
Muscle relxants like flexeril also can be added by your doctor after clinical evaluation for additional relief.
Please avoid any bending, heavy lifting, long walking/standing/ sitting in one place.
Please sleep on unaffected side for now.
You can use a pillow under your knees to release pressure on your lower back.
Ultrasound therapy, massage therapy can be tried by a physical therapist to expedite the healing process.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
