In brief: Back trauma

If it recent and of a mild incident some soreness--just rest, ice, and otc pain meds, like ibuprofen---if you can this type of med.
Otherwise, trauma indicates to me that you should be seen by a medical professional soon. Was it due to an auto accident, fall at home, exercise, abuse? If your pain is increasing, you have numbness, tingling, or loss of body functions; you must seek medical help.
