Back pain is : Very common. The best thing you can do is to stay as active as possible – even if you are in pain. People with low back pain recover faster if they stay active. Walk as much as you can. If you stopped working because of your pain, try to get back to your normal routine soon. But do not overdo it. You can try using ibuprofen or any over the counter pain relief. See your doctor if you don’t improve
