Neck and Back Injury

stayfit4ever posted:
Suffered a neck and back injury this weekend. I lost my grip from the top of a soccer goal post and landed on my head and upper back. Initially I was disoriented but managed to get up and sit down with the help of my friends who thought I got a mini-concussion. I'm a bit stubborn when it comes to admitting injury but being able to stand up and walk around I thought I was fine.
I woke up yesterday morning and my neck and back felt really stiff. I'm still able to move my head around - right, left, up, down, etc., but my back hurts pretty badly when I take a deep breath. Possibly the result of internal bruising?
Since I'm able to walk and move my head around okay maybe this is just a case of internal bruising / bad back strain? I would describe myself as very fit - I work out and run frequently, so maybe this is something that will go away after a few days. Or should I check with a doctor asap? Thanks for the advice...
