Pain in lowerback/hip

Question: Pain in lowerback/hip

Hello,

5 days ago I played a soccer game. I noticed no pain when playing but after the game I had a a lot of pain in my hip and lower back. The pain has subsided a reasonable amount since but it is still there. I have no bruising and can walk and run with minimal discomfort although it does feel worse afterwards.

What could I have done? I did make a few sliding tackles and a diving header during the game so maybe I banged my hip?

The pain feels more in the bone than tissue. Is this a bruised bone? I curious as to why there is no bruising!

How should I treat the injury?
