In brief: Home treatments

Try heat or ice, a back brace, rolling on a soft small ball or a tens unit.
If the pain is severe or disrupting your life, see a doctor. To really treat your back pain, you must have an accurate diagnosis. Once the cause of the pain is known, a specific treatment can be utilized to alleviate the symptoms. Most back pains go away in 2-3 weeks time without any treatment at all. If not, see a md.
