Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
From description , it seems you might developed muscular or ligamentous strain over back .
I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. You may get the MRI of the area affected under his/her guidance.
Meanwhile following measures will help with the pain
• Lie on a hard bed.
• Anti -inflammatory drugs like Tablet Motrin 1 tablet as and when required
• Avoid forward bending.
• Avoid strenuous activity & lifting heavy weights.
• Apply diclofenac gel on the affected area. Warm compresses will also help.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back that you are feeling is likely to be due to a spinal injury. You need a bed rest on a firm mattress till the diagnosis is confirmed properly. Get an MRI done to find out the extent of injury you have suffered.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
