Brief Answer:
most likely local muscle spasm

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
Need to know more about the pain pattern. Does it radiate horizontally? any burning sensation? whats your age? any other medical illness? any undue exertion recently?
Most common reason for such pain is local muscle spasm. however other reason such as neurological pain need to be ruled out.
I would suggest to try anti inflammatory with muscle relaxant and rib belt with local gel application. This should relieve the muscle spasm. Thanks.

Brief Answer:
stretching of abdominal and back muscle may help

Detailed Answer:
I would suggest to consult a physiotherapist and work on the abdominal and back muscles. That may resolve the issue. Swimming also a good option. Thanks.
