Brief Answer: I would suggest the following- Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. It appears you may have strained the muscles of your back. I would suggest the following- * Give adequate rest to the involved muscle group and avoid any movement that causes pain * Ice packing once in every 2 hours over the affected area * Moist heat application to relax the muscles * Apply local anti-inflammatory gel 2-3 times a day. * Take anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen to reduce pain and inflammation. * Do not lift weight or try to do exercise that involve painful muscles. Give proper time to heal. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care
