Default Lower/Upper Back pain after being rear ended

I donít know if itís appropriate for me to make a thread here as I never post, I typically just read for the valuable information you guys give. Anyway, hereís my situation: My dad was recently rear-ended on his motorcycle while traveling approximately 65 MPH on the freeway. He managed to keep his bike from falling and sustained what seemed like no serious injuries at the time. However, lately heís been experiencing some sharp pains in his lower/upper back. If heís on his feet too long during the day heíll become sore, and simple activities like bending over or getting up after sitting down for a while are painful to him.

Iím hoping someone here with some experience in lower/upper back pain would be able to recommend some light at-home exercises for my Dad to maybe relieve some of his pain. Keep in mind heís an older man (in his fifties) and he has little to no gym experience. If someone here could help I would appreciate it a lot.

His injury could just be soreness from the impact, or it could be something more serious. Before he does anything exercise-related, he should see a doctor to make sure it isn't something potentially serious.

If he experiences pain just from simple things like bending over then see a doctor. A doctor can tell you if there's any nerve damage or bruising to any muscles.

I suppose I'll have to wait until he goes in for his MRI.

It sounds to me like it may be a herniated disk.
