Hello, Im Dr Palmer, There are many options. And it depends what the cause of your back pain is. If it is a strain or pull then alternating heat and ice 20 min on and off is helpful. Otherwise ibuprofen is helpful as need directed on the package.
If chronic then can consider physical therapy or visiting an orthopedist or pain physician to see if there is an intervention such as an injection that can be done for you. Medications only mask the problem unfortunately. Short course of vicodin or percocet can be helpful but these can certainly be addictive.
There are other anti inflammatory medications like Diclofenac or Pain patches you can wear as well. Back pain can be difficult. Often physical therapy, stretching, icing andlow impact exercise, weight loss can help if you happen to be overweight.
Prescriptions cannot be written online.
Osteopathic manipulation from a DO physician may also be helpful
