Knuckle landing?

I landed straight on the deck of the jump I was doing. It was a 30 footer so i had some good speed and came down hard. After that my lower back hurt like crazy. What happened? How do I recover? How long will it take?

Thanks guys,

Go See A Chiro!!!

Hey Skylar, not anyone on this forum will be able to tell you what is wrong with your back. It could something as simple and minor as a bruise to something much worse (worst?). Having said that, no one on this forum can possibly tell you how long it will take to recover or the proper recovery procedures. Go to your local ER/Clinic/Chiropractor! And please don't downplay this injury!

Does it still hurt??? If so, /\ agree. It could be a fractured vertebrae, your hips out of alignment, just sore from the impact/jar effect.
I live and die by my chiropractor.
Depending when this happened, the pain associated with it and if it is starting to get better or worse. Only you can judge this and never dismiss medical attention. If all is good a simple co-pay and your just a little sore. If not you could do more damage by not seeing a doctor.

Thanks guys for the responces. It has gotten much better. Last night I heated then cooled it and then stretched. 100x better.

I understand that you guys couldnt give me an exact time to recover, I was just looking for an estimate. Thanks anyways.

It turned out to be nothing too serrious after all.
