    I would just give it time to heal & get better & take regular anti-inflammatories & paracetamol. Try heat too as increasing blood flow to the sore area will help it to heal. Keep moving around though so you don't stiffen up. If its not better by 6 weeks though i would speak to doctor again. Good luck & hope it gets better soon.

    Hi Tom it sounds like you have badly bruised yourself while falling, bruising can be very painful and last for 2-4 weeks. Painkillers and plenty of rest may be your best form of action good luck.Hope you are feeling better very soon.

    You may get hot water therapy temporary and also you should meet with chiropractic doctor he will suggest for diagnosis then prescribe.
