Lumbago - Sciatica - Backache

It may be useful to take some anti inflammatory/analgesic medicines and myorelaxants according to the doctor’s instructions; meanwhile it may be relieving to apply heat.
Once the pain has eased, it is recommended a light physical activity and some exercises to strengthen and stretch the back.
