What do you all take OTC for lower back pain? I twisted or pinched something in my back. I've heard Aleve is pretty good. Looking for other suggestions.

I like option #3 but I don't think my employer would:)

aleve, nothing works great though. Having a spell with mine now. Concerned it won't be healed enough to use a climber on Oct 1 opener.

It sucks getting old (46). I hurt my back 18 years ago and it has never really been the same. Thanks for the suggestions. Daisyduke, I really like your suggestion! Are you located near N. IL???

I have a bad vertibra in my back that will twist and inflame nerves. I have 3 precriptions 1 is naproxine with is simpley industral strength Alieve, another for muscle spasizms and vicodine for the bad days. I no longer have the need to use any of them I have not been to the Chiro since the new year started. Antler Spray.

stretching and strengthening is the only way to get rid of the pain permanently.
A quality chiropractor is also worth every penny.

We have a bowl of ibuprofen on the kitchen counter - take a handful whenever we walk by.

Massage Therapist to loosen things up and a Chiropractor to get it back in place.
Plus plenty of stretches to work the groups that give me the most problem and tennis balls and foam rollers to work the problem spots myself until I can get in.
