Hello, welcome to icliniq.
Its not about taking medicines or treatment, every problematic symptoms, pain and disease needs to be treated with a treatment plan and course to be implemented.
Sprained muscles can easily be reduced and healed with Ultrasound therapy for 10-15 days and also applying hot water fermentation using Diclofenac ointment at home is also an added advantage to reducing sprain.
After reducing the sprain and getting relaxed muscles then need to stretch the muscles step by step slowly increasing the exercise day by day or weekly once changing according to improvement.
Here i will suggest you simple exercises for lower back need to be strengthen for a period of 15-20 days.
Apply diclofenac ointment for a week twice a day will reduce anybtype of severe pain. if possible take IFT ( inferential therapy ) and ultrasound for 10 -15 days.
Follow up after a week. thank you.
