Thanks for the query. Soft tissue injury
at times quite severe and may take time to recover. First of all its important to rule out any significant spinal injury
. Initial treatment for soft tissue injury is giving rest to the part. In your case at least one or two days of complete rest. Along with that try some pain medicine, muscle relaxant
, local gel and ice pack application. Also avoid prolong standing or sitting in one position for a week.I hope you will get better soon. However If symptoms persist then I would suggest to consult a local physician.Thanks.
