What would help my back pain before it gets worse?

I just shoveled really heavy snow ! My back is killing me. What can I do or take immediately to help the pain later? I smell like Ben Gay!

  • Ibuprofen. Heating pad. Stretches. Massage. You're going to be sore for at least a few days. After a few days you could try going to the chiropractor for any skeletal misalignments from doing it.

  • I'd say take Ibprofen (sp). It'll help any inflammation in your back go down.

  • Stand and then bend over and touch your toes. You can lay on the floor, I do that some times. Or get someone to give you a message. Or lay in a hot tub of watter.
