Back injury

Hi Doc.

We went to a resort yesterday and my wife was on the water slides. As she went to the bottom, a whole lot of people came down immediately after and she got kicked quite hard on her lower back. Its actually swollen and blue now. What can we do? Its quite painful also?

Thanks

There may be immediate soft tissue injury - give her a few days for this to subside and if she is still experiencing major discomfort, it would be wise to consult a chiropractor. Your family doctor can assist with an anti-inflammatory tab and analgesics if she is presently experiencing severe pain.
