Coccyx sand injury

I am a college long jumper and was recently fooling around with a buddy of mine around a sand volleyball court adjacent to my dorm. He made a jump from the end line towards the net and I followed. My feet hit virtually the same spot and I fell backwards - not onto soft sand but on nearly rock hard ground where the sand had been pushed away.

Nearly every movement, from a change in my given seated or walking position to simple Goosebumps is followed by concentrated and severe pain. I am 6'0" 170 lbs and healthy, is there any way for me to know how long the recovery process will take - assuming there is no fracture?
