I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

The fall has likely injured the muscles and ligaments of your chest and abdominal wall and hips and thigh. If the impact of fall was moderate to severe; you need to get x-rays of these areas which are painful. The hair line cracks in the bone are only visible on x-rays and there are no clinical examination clues as there are neither deformity nor loss of range of motion of the affected joints. Despite that you do not have any back pain; x-rays of the back too are mandatory. Compression fracture of vertebra are many times painless. Meanwhile following are likely to help you;

1) Cold compresses.

2) Ibuproen

3) Analgesic cream.

4) Abdominal brace.

5) Rest; avoid all painful activities.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
