Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Tension in the back can cause headaches.
Steroid injection will help in case of muscle spasms at the back.
Also you should try out physical therapy for back problem.
Acupuncture is another good alternative option.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
