Brief Answer:
X-ray is recommended if pain is not reducing

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Based on the symptoms, the suffering could well be due to muscle strain/stiffness. My suggestion would be to have-Hot water fomentation, avoid prolong sitting, Ibuprofen along with muscle relaxant (prescription only) drug thiocolchicoside will help. Your local phrmacist/GP might know about them.It usually takes 2-3 weeks time to recover.
Hope this helps.
Take care

Hello
You are welcome
I have gone through your reply and it is must to have X-ray ,if the injury was significant and pain is not reducing with time.
Your back can be strengthened by by regular exercises, vitamin D and calcium. The usual recommended dose of vitamin D is once a week (sachet calcirol 60,000 K) with a glass of milk for 3 months and calcium 1000mg/day.
The weakness of spine is caused by poor diet, lack of exercises and bad posture.
Hope this helps.
Get well soon.

Hi
You are welcome
The exercises can be learned from physiotherapist. I usually advise the yoga (surya namaskar) exercises. These can be easily found online (internet) but should be done under guidance.
