Basic treatment of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> strain
is called RICE, which is an acronym for
Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.
Now with a back injury
, compression and even elevation may not apply.
But ice and rest are your best choices. ibuprofen
is an excellent NSAID medication for
reducing inflammation, and therefor
e reducing pain.
The tingling sensation you feel could be from icing, or from deeper within. It is a "wait and see" condition.
