I sat into my car one day a month ago and suddenly my back froze up and i couldn't move it at all, or else i'd feel intense pain almost everywhere in my back. the best way for me to describe it is it is like a charlie horse in my back. and after a few days it goes away, but i still can't turn to my sides. and if i try to go shoot around some basketball it freezes up again. very painful. please help.

Here's a medication I take for the same problem,not sure if it will help you ?
Soma (Carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxant, used to relieve the pain and stiffness of muscle strains and spasms.

Usually when you have a sudden bout of muscle spasm like you describe, it's probably been building up for some time. In your case, sitting in the car may have been the tipping point.
The act of twisting is probably one of the movements that puts the greatest amount of stress through your back. If your tissues haven't healed and you put yourself into a position where they are at risk of re-injury or irritation, your body will try to protect itself.
You should definitely get checked out by your medical professional to rule out anything more serious. After that, improving your posture and core stability will help long term.
Hope that helps.

The extreme back pain when you turn, and back freezes up when you quickly change position after been into one position for a very long time. http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/recall
