You do not have a diagnosis.
Given that you were twisting and playing tennis and felt a "pop" this can be more than simple strain.
A slipped disc must be ruled out, torn ligament of the spine is possible, and you need a structural exam.
If indicated by exam you need an MRI.Simply treating it at home without follow up is not adequate and potentially leaves you open to long term complications...for example you might need the correct physical therapy.
Do not simply treat this yourself and assume everything will be fine.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
