Week after hurting my lower back

Patient: I was lifting and twisting in an awkward way and had my lower back feel like something was squeezing it with a dull pain and I can’t bend over. it’s been a week an most of the pain is gone besides when I sit for more than 10 minutes the dull pain comes back a little. Is my spine still bruised? Or what do you think?

 

 

Symptoms: Dull pain in lower center back
