In brief: Treat cause

Nsaids have a role to play with reducing pain and inflammation.
However, they do not identify nor treat the cause. Therefore, it is important to be evaluated to see if a thorough history unveils the probable etiology ( causative event) and to have a physical exam from a qualified practitioner such as an osteopathic physician who can assist your body with removing the cause and restoring health!

In brief: Yes

Try medications like aleve, (naproxen) ibuprofen, or any other NSAID to help your back pain.
Other things to help are always weight loss, exercises like williams back exercises, and no smoking. Flexibility is a mainstay to help your back. You don't want to take nsaids over too long a period of time. If it persists, see your family dr.
