    I'd say the pain in your upper back, shoulders and neck are probably coming from "compensation". You walk differently due to the low back pain, and that causes the rest of your muscles to move in ways they usually dont, straining them.
    Watch your posture, and try to identify when those muscles hurt the most; at the end of a day? Were you not able to rest your lower back much and now the upper back hurts too? Treat the upper back pain with the usual for strains: hot shower, Tylenol/Advil, pain relieving rub such as BenGay or BioFreeze.
    And dont forget to mention it to your dt. Good luck!
