Doctor

A:   Your best option would be physiotherapy along with anti inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, diclofenac etc. to reduce pain and inflammation. Since your pain seems to be due to muscle sprain or strain, associated with the repeated overuse and stress on the back muscles. Hot or cold compress, adequate rest and stretches are important measures for complete recovery and strengthening of back muscles.
