Thanks for writing to us.

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...
