Welcome to HCM.
Back injury may cause significant trauma to muscle although the bones are intact. Sometimes the muscle ache may be annoying for months. Try using back belt and consider doing physical therapy in addition to medicine. Avoid prolong sitting, heavy lifting and bending through your back. Sometimes back muscle stretching also helps. Thanks.
