Probably the muscles: And/or ligaments are pulled/strained. Occurs if one does not do warm ups or increases the weights too rapidly.

Good luck. ...Read more

There are options: You could do isometric exercises. This means that you use your own body to create resistance. Imagine pushing against a door that is already locked, this generates muscle contraction but you aren't lifting anything heavy. Also aqua aerobics is a good option.
