If im not mistaken is because of the lactic acid produced during exercise (needed) that remains there after exercise. Passive stretching after exercise while still warm helps reduce this. Do note that most back and shoulder paisn don't originate on the muscles but on some other problem (bones, tendons, protective menbranes (specially on back and chest).

Do a search in google for "Lactic acid muscle soreness" and you should get some ph.d's explanations...
