Thanks for posting your query.
Back pain can be due to lot of reasons. Most commonly, it is due to muscle spasm caused due to improper stretching of back muscles due to faulty posture while sleeping or wrong work posture as well.

Ideally, the patient needs to visit a physiotherapist for a couple of sessions and also take any good muscle relaxant drug along with application of topical local analgesic spray/ointment for relief. Even hot fomentation will help in reducing/eliminating the pain.

If the pain persists, I would strongly recommend you to visit an orthopedic surgeon for stronger prescription pain killers and muscle relaxants.

I hope this answers your query.

Is it possible that it could be a problem with XXXXXXX organs?
Answered by Dr. Praveen Tayal 4 hours later
Thanks for writing again.
Since the pain started after shoveling the snow, an XXXXXXX organ damage is not likely. The muscular pains usually subside after adequate rest.
Hope my answer is helpful.
