In brief: Back pain
The back pain can be caused by muscle strain, spinal stenosis, ruptured disc, nerve impingement .
.. You can try heat pads, exercise, massage, chiropractic therapy, over the counter medications like ibuprofen, tylenol (acetaminophen).... If your pain persists, please see a pain specialist for evaluation. There are many non narcotic medications they can prescribe for your pain.
