No: If your back hurts, it is not normal. If you had a sports injury that caused the pain and the pop, you need to get your spine examined and xray'd if needed.

No : No, I would not say that is normal. Although it could splu represent a simple soft tissue injury that can quickly resolve, I would recommend being seen and having at a minimum an X-ray to rule out something more serious.
