Seriously, see a Chiropractor, and look for one that follows the Gonstead system. If the guy doing the hands-on work is a wimp, forget it. Find another chiropractor. You need a pretty burly guy to do the job right.
You should also try some back specific exercising. Stretch by laying on your back and then with your feet flat and knees up, pull one knee to your chest, keeping the other foot on the floor, then the other one. Do it a couple of times and then roll over, lay flat and tilt your head up, then kind of do a push up with your hips/stomach still flat on the floor, arching your back. Do this a bunch of times. Should make the back bearable, and don't put heat on it. Ice it or go buy some spray on "ice" to cool it off.
Back pain sucks. But there is nothing better than a good chiropractor for it, however, finding a good chiropractor can be as hard as finding copper gutters or copper gutter thiefs. Jim
