I am a woman experiencing back pain for the past few days.Can you tell me about effective ways to relieve back pain?
Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.
Consider over-the-counter options for back pain relief:
Diclofenac gel: Apply three times a day for a week.
Ibuprofen 400 mg: Take twice a day after meals as needed for 4-7 days, but do not exceed this duration.
Ibuprofen can be harsh on the stomach
Do not take Ibuprofen if you have bronchial asthma or if you are pregnant due to potential risks.
