In brief: Back pain

This is the most common physical pain.
Depending upon the damage, it can be a sprain of back muscles or ligaments, or a disc malposition or a fracture of a vertebra. Presumably the er sorted these out for you and gave you instructions and a diagnosis. Ice is almost always helpful and try to protect the back from painful motion. Physical therapy can help. Not chiropractic.
