Hip and Lower Back Pain as a Result of Injury to Ribs

I recently fell off my horse and broke 6 ribs. I have recuperated from the fractures from 3 months ago with the exception of some minor rib pain. However, recently over the past couple weeks I have been experiencing hip and lower back pain. I have never had joint pain in my hips before and am wondering if this could be the result of the injury I sustained 3 months ago. When I impacted the ground, I landed on my right back side between my shoulder and hip. Since I had no pain in the hip area when I was treated at the emergency room, no x-rays were taken of that area.

I was curious to see if anyone out there may have suffered from hip pain as a result to an injury to the back or rib areas.
