Hello everyone!

As I was picking up my squriming toddler this morning, I realized that I was throwing my back out at the same time. :(

I immediately went down for the count. I have been on a heating pad for the last 5 hours, getting up every 30 minutes or so to stretch.

My question is: What's the best way to expedite recovery? Resting only? Alternating heat with ice? Stretching? If so, what sort of stretches? Advil? I am hoping to back on feet ASAP so that I can take care of my kiddos ( I guess we all want that to happen :P )

Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you in advance!
