Thank you for posting your query.

The commonest cause of back pain is mechanical, due to prolonged sitting required for jobs, computer use, studies, driving, etc.

One needs to strengthen the back muscles to prevent pain in the region. These exercises are referred to as back extension exercises. You can learn them under the guidance of a physiotherapist.

For pain relief, you can use ketorolac or diclofenac gels over the painful area of the back.

Wishing you good health,
