bMassage your back with warm eucalyptus or mustard oil. Self massage can help your muscles to move more. It’s not that easy but if you cannot manage it yourself then ask your partner to do it for you. The warm oil will improve blood flow in the back to help relax the muscles.
Tea made up of ten basil leaves and drunk twice a day is apparently very helpful in relieving back pain. I’ve not tried this as I’m not a real lover of basil but I should give it a go.
Chamomile is another tea which can help back pain as it relaxes your muscles and helps you sleep. I always have a cup of chamomile and raspberry tea around 9pm as my last hot drink of the day.

Listen to calming music as it takes your mind off your pain.
Meditate to tame intrusive thoughts and tension.
Do yoga and stretching to relax.
Heat or ice packs to reduce inflammation.
