potholes and back pain

Dear Doctor - recently i was driving at night and didn't see a bad section of road that was so full of potholes i felt like i was a riding a bucking bronco horse in a rodeo for about six seconds, though it seemed like an eternity - now my back has been hurting ever since then and i've been using ice - it makes me wonder how much shock do our spines absorb from a patch of bad potholes and can any serious injuries to the spine result from these nasty road hazards?
