I understand your back pain
.These symptoms seems to be part of muscle or ligament strain.
For this condition you have to do stretching & strengthening exercises in which you have to stretch tight muscle & strengthen weakened ones under supervision of a physiotherapist.
The following measures will help with the pain
• Do use firm mattress
• Anti -inflammatory drugs like Motrin
1 tablet as and when required ( do not repeat a dose before 6 hours) with food will help relieve the pain.
• Avoid forward bending.
• Correct your posture while sitting.
• Avoid prolonged sitting in stressful postures.
• Avoid strenuous activity & lifting heavy weights. Avoid lifting weights by leaning forward or bending your back. Rather sit and lift the object.
• Apply diclofenac
gel on the affected area. Warm compresses will also help.
Wishing you good health...
