Hello doctor,

When I was 19 years old, I slipped in a wet road and my hips bumped on the ground. Now I am 21 years old, and now I experienced muscle back pain or numbness in my lower back sometimes but not often. The pain just happens if I hold heavy objects or been in a long trip in a rocky road or face my computer for hours.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It seems it is the result of the trauma you have had two years ago. Muscle or spine bone damage may have occurred. That can be understood doing a MRI examination of your spine. Anyway if that does not happen often, there is no any specific treatment you can take about that. Just take any painkiller when you feel pain (Ibuprofen) and nothing more. Avoid weight lifting or hard physical activity. Avoid long time standings. If you are overweight, lose some kilograms. You can do some light spine exercises or physiotherapy to remove pain and numbness of your back. If no improvement, then see a neurologist for further assistance. Take care and best wishes.
