Thanks for posting your query.
Acute low backache
you have seems to be due to muscular or ligamentous strain.
I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. You may get the X-ray/MRI
of the area affected under his/her guidance.
The following measures will help with the pain
• Lie on a hard bed.
• Anti -inflammatory drugs like Tablet Motrin
1 tablet as and when required ( dont repeat a dose before 6 hours) with food will help relieve the pain. This should be available at your local pharmacy
• Avoid forward bending.
• Correct your posture while sitting
• Avoid prolonged sitting
• Avoid strenuous activity & lifting heavy weights.
• Apply diclofenac
gel on the affected area. Warm compresses will also help.
Wishing you good health
