Suggest treatment for back pain

hello, the right side of my back has been hurting me since the past 5 days. At first it was just the back of my neck , the next day my lower back was sore and now it has spread all over the right side of my back. My mom checked it and she told me its a bit swollen. What could it be ? I am a 17 year old girl, i weight 149 pounds and I m 5 6.

I have studied your case and I think it I think it. can be due to back muscle sprain. It can be triggered by suddenly lifting heavy weight or sudden bending forward. I would suggest you to follow these steps.
1. Avoid lifting heavy weight. I would recommend you bed rest.
2.Tablet. Myospaz or Myoril tablet daily for muscle relaxation.
3. Hot water fomentation
4. Voletran ointment
I hope these steps will be helpful for you. Let me know if there is any other followup questions. Thanks for using healthcare magic.

I have been experiencing back pain for a while now. Its not really bad, it s just continual until I lay down or take ibuprofen. I don t like taking ibuprofen, and would like to know if I should see a chiropractor or not. I think my pain has to do with standing for long hours, sitting in one position for a while, or even sleeping bad.
