Acute lumbosacral strain

I had got an acute lumbosacral strain in my back like two weeks ago ! The pain has reduced but it kinda hurts if I sit for a long time in one place ! I do keep heat pads once a day ! Is there anything else that I can do for it to recover completely at a faster pace ? Like any particular food or any exercise that I should do ?

Ensure that you maintain an appropriate posture while working or sitting or walking....Take frequent stretch breaks and drink lots of water...Discontinue using pillow while sleeping straight...Do not lift heavy objects, especially after bending down....Eat a healthy wholesome meal which should satisfy your minerals and proteins requirement...take over the counter pain medications.. Consult nearest orthopedic surgeon they will do the needful.
