[COLOR="Navy"]You can try ice on for 20 minutes then off. Ice helps take down the swelling. Takeing an anti-inflammatory med will also help some. An OTC to take would be Aleve...[/COLOR]

[COLOR="Navy"]I would take Aleve 24/7 for several days. You can ice on and off during the day. My guess is that it will take several days of resting it for the swelling to go down and the muscle to heal. Try not to use it as much as possible.[/COLOR]

Re: Inflamed back muscle best treatments?

To add to what has already been said, a little stretching can help, if it is sore, do the stretching very slowly after you have iced. Backing off your normal routine and avoiding jarring motions like running. The OTC meds Aleve and Motrin will help if they are in your system like ibakeandpray has already recommended.
hope it calms down for you
