Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
sprains take upto 6 weeks to subside.the best remedy is to restrict her spinal movements to minimu,that she can do without much discomfort.Let her take pain killers as prescribed under cover of pantaprazole 40 mg empty stomach once a day.do not jump for too many scans or visits, wait patiently for 6 weeks, reassure her nothing serious and shall be fine .mild tranquilizer trika 0.25mg daily in the evenings would allay all fears .
