She fell about three feet flat on to her back. She was able to hobble home and I have given her ibuprofen and calpol and she is now in the bath soaking. I realise it will be painful for her but does anyone know if there is anything to look out for. She really went down with a crash. Many thanks.

oooh, I remember doing exactly the same and was really winded but OK after a rest and bath etc! Poor dd - but have no really useful advice, sorry. Hope she feels better soon!

Thanks dinny. I think it shook her up as well. I'm thinking if she is walking around etc that it's just going to be bruised, nothing more serious.

I take my kids to an osteopath if they have such a fall. She really works wonders. She believes that such injuries manifest themselves when you are an adult if left untreated when you are a child and I am inlined to believe her. HTH
