Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I think you are having weak back muscles. I would suggest you to learn back muscles strengthening exercise. I would also suggest you to start taking muscle relaxant like myoril or myospaz tablet. If your pain is not decreasing then I would recommend you to get MRI of the spine.
