Deep massage is particularly effective, especially if used together with St John's Wort Oil. If the back feels "as if broken" then surprisingly zinc tablets will ease the pain rapidly. You want two or three of the 50 mg of zinc in organic form. Local massage with aromatic creams design for sports injuries are effective. My favorite is to rub "Zostrix" cream into the most painful spots. This is a very strong cream containing the 'hot' fraction of chillies. The cream overwhelms your pain reflexes, allowing the muscles to relax and thereby reduce the inflammatory processes. Hot packs over the injury also may ease the muscular spasm and give relief.

Depends on the pain...The best thing for me when I last pulled my lower back was to stretch it. Lie on a hard surface...floor worked best for me...tried doing it from my bed, but I had better results with the floor. With your back on the floor, Start by aligning your spine by bending your knees towards your chest...you will feel a pull...don't do any sudden or jerky movements, slow and steady. Then put both feet on the floor, knees bent. Lift the leg that the pain seems to be in straight up...you will feel it pull...and it may hurt...so go slow! Leg in the air, flex your foot, slowly, up and down. I took about 15 minutes twice a day...until it was nicely stretched...felt like a million after doing it each time. Was worried I couldn't stand up after getting to the floor...make sure you have something like a chair nearby to assist you with standing...but I really didn't need it. Also, treat with heat after first 24 hours...for the first 24, hot and cold alternating about every 15-30 minutes.

See a chiropractor sooner rather than later. In addition to adjustments, he/she will give you exercises that will benefit you long term. One other thing is NEVER carry your wallet in a rear pocket. When you sit you are twisting and throwing your back and hips into a stressful position. I have been without sciatic pain ever since making a switch to my front pocket ten years ago.

Listen to Lyra96
Hot bath. Do not stay in bed all day but move around and do gentle work. If it is nothing more serious than muscle sprain your back should recover quickly. Would not hurt to take an antiinflamitory pill like Tylenol or aspirin.

I had a pinched nerve in my back from an odd fall playing ice hockey. It felt like a sword was stebbed in my back from shoulder to waist. Chiropractic treatment din't help this time and they were reluctant to my suggestions. One mentioned trying a rolfer. Around 1930, a woman named Rolf developed a systematic massage to relax the entire skeleton. It worked wonders for me. It is NOT a comfortable massage, but instead goes right to the edge of serious pain. It's similar to getting into a very hot bath where it's almost too hot, but immediately feels so good. Rolfers are hard to find, but are worth it in my opinion.

A chiropractor might help if you have a pulled muscle. Otherwise you need to see an actual MD doctor, an orthopedist. Stay completely away from osteopathy.

It all depends on what the source of the pain is. For immediate relief, try icing it (ice in a plastic bag) for no more than 10 minutes, then, immediately alternating the treatment with a heating pad for 10 minutes. Bed rest is also helpful, but don't stay in bed for too long, because you'll get too stiff. Movement is good if you go easy. If you can, do some easy stretches while lying in bed, but be careful, do it gently and slowly. If it continues or recurs, get a diagnosis from your MD. It may be arthritic pain, a strained muscle, a number of causes, that each would need to be in treated differently. Hope the pain goes away and you are back to normal soon. God bless.
