Is it safe to take Tramadol for back pain?

Hi, I threw my back out this morning and am in extreme pain. I did this several years ago and was given methodological and tramadol for pain. I still have this medication although they expired in 2014. To complicate matters we are about to get a blizzard. My question is can I take this medication to try and alleviate my back issues. Thank you,John Brennan

You cab take Tramadol but better to take Diclofenac with Thicolchicoside combination twice a day. Avoid bending forwards or lifting weights.
