I fell about 5' and landed on my buttocks. It is painful when I flex them. Advice?


Posted by kajole

I exercise 4+ days per week and am pretty healthy.  No fractures or breaks in the buttock area.

Thank you for your reply.  I fell on Friday evening of Jan. 2nd.  Each day is getting better, but when I flex my buttock muscles it is very sore.  I am continuing my Ibuprofen on a schedule.  It sounds like I need to give it time to heal.  I am back to Jazzercise this morning, but will go a bit easy.  Thank you so much.
