In brief: Heat, rest, magnets
A heating pad (or hot water bottle) may help.
Rest often helps.Avoid activities & positions that cause pain.You can try stretching & massage.Applying therapeutic magnets can reduce pain & speed healing.Anti-inflammatories like Aspirin or ibprofen can help, as can natural ones like curumin.If there is spasm, natural anti-spasmodics like magnesium & valerian may help. See a doctor if not improving.
