Injured at work?

Good afternoon, I currently work in law enforcement and had fallen down a flight of stairs.  Although I had not reported it yet , my lower back still hurts.  

My question is how weeks or months do back injuries keep someone on light duty for? By my understanding they are chronic and borderline undetectable.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for the time.

    No way to know without exactly knowing the amount of injury, if this is on the job, you need to report this NOW or any future care can be denied including work pay, physical therapy, meds etc. You would need a medical note for light duty as well
