Muscle Spasm

I have pulled my upper back muscle (i think while exercising).Now the area 6in below the neck appears to be in knots. I have applied some sprays (Moov) but that only gives temporary relief. There is no pain if I'm simply sitting down. Its only on certain movements like turning around or lifting objects that causes pain

Hello, back pain is caused by injury to a muscle (strain) or ligament (sprain). Common causes include improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, fracture, ruptured disk, or arthritis.Often, the only symptom is pain in the back.Most back pain goes away on its own in two to four weeks. Physical therapy and pain relievers can help., for muscle strain and sprain. Avoid lifting heavy weight, sit, stand and walk straight, avoid massaging of the area. If pain is severe consult orthopedician.
