I fell down hard on my buttocks then rolled onto my back 4

Customer Question

I fell down hard on my buttocks then rolled onto my back 4 weeks ago. I do a lot of walking at work and I am now having pain in my low back and groin on the right side. The Xray I had showed that I have no fractures but I have arthritis in my back hip and pelvic area (from having children) My question is Can this pain be due to my fall from four weeks ago?

any other medical problems?

Yes, it is likely from the fall and groin pain is usually radiated from the hip
So this is probably coming from the hip
I would see an orthopedic doctor and get an MRI of the hip
