Bruised Tailbone?


Q: I was at a psrty and I jumped off a bleacher on to a huge cushion. I went throught the cushion and hit my tailbone on the ground. Afterwords the wind was knocked out of me and my back got tight. Afterwords I got up and I walked around fine with a tight back and a sore tailbone. Later I could sit, stand, walk,walk up and down the stairs, bend over with no extra pain. When i brought my knee to my chest it hurt a little bit in the middle of my back. I'm 12 and baseball just started so I'm worried I might not play.What did I do to myself?How can i fix it?
