Consult an orthopaedic doctor.
Take an x-ray, he may advice you thoracic support.
Apply a diclofenac gel for 3 to 4 times daily and lie flat ( volini) is effective.

From your symptoms it seems like a Lattismus Dorsi muscle strain. Localised Ice pack application (for 10 minutes each time) twice daily will help relieve your pain. If you are still not relieved of the pain, do consult a Physiotherapist in your neighbourhood. A course of Ultrasound Therapy, IFT and stretching exercises will help alleviate the pain.
