Back pain is quite common and effects nearly 85% of the world population at some time in their lives. Most causes of back pain is due to some.muscle sprain or minor injury which heals on its own. This is born true by research that shows that majority of back pain patients are "cured" within 6 weeks even without any treatment. Hence since the back pain is less than a week old as you say just local msaage of the pai ful spot as well as mild pain medications and gentle exercises is all this required. You should be up and about and well in no time. Please consult a doctor if the back pain persists beyond 2 to 6 weeks.
