Back strain: I would stick to a good NSAID (zipsor, naprelan) and a muscle relaxer. Narcotics (like oxycodone) do not address the underlying problem. Ther are however many other narcotics besides oxycodone if your doctor feels you need one (tramadol, hydrocodone).

Massage, ice, stim: Pain relief is only one component of treatment for back strain. Massage, ice or heat depending on duration of strain, electrical stimulation, and traction may help. Soma, (carisoprodol) which relaxes the muscles and relieves anxiety, may also help.
