Hello Doctor,

I recently pulled a muscle in my back and it's causing a lot of pain. What can I do to relieve the pain and speed up my recovery?

If the issue with your back muscles is not severe, such as a ruptured muscle or a lumbar disc lesion, the best course of action is to rest. Taking an anti-inflammatory medication can help manage the pain, and using a stomach protector can prevent any potential side effects. It is also crucial to maintain proper posture and avoid overstretching your back muscles to prevent further injury.
