If it is localized muscle pain, ultrasound therapy helps a lot in relieving inflammation which comes out in form of pain. once your pain will reduce , go for back strengthening exercises under the supervision of physiotherapist. once you are trained in exercises, you can continue at home. work on your weight is also important. take care

Hi.... Exercise. Regular low-impact aerobic activities — those that don't strain or jolt your back — increase strength and endurance in your back and allow your muscles to function better...... Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight strains back muscles. If you're overweight, trimming down can prevent back pain. Use proper body mechanics: Stand smart. Maintain a neutral pelvic position.... Consult orthopedician.....
