In brief: Rest is key

For back problems , the key is to allow the injury to heal.
If one keeps performing the exacerbating activity, there is no reason for the injury to heal the symptoms can be helped with nsaid, muscle relaxants and physical therapy. Unfortunately, time is the key for almost any injury to heal which is what athletes don't want to hear.
