I was in the same situation this summer and now I have to quit school temporarely because the injury worsened to a point where I can't sit for more then 30 minutes.


If you have inflammation, a massage therapist can actually worsen your situation. You should go to a doctor, ask for physiotherapy and go to a chiro to ensure your spinal alignement is good.


Do NOT try to crack your back, lift heavy things or do heavy exercices. You can put some ice on and off for 15 minutes, heat/cold therapy's usually good to calm the swelling and stiffness.

Seriously, back injuries can degenerate fast and trust me when I tell you they can be more painfull then anything you've felt before if your nerve gets irritated.
