I threw out my back today. I was working on my wife's new deck and didn't do anything to strenuous. I leaned over and reached for the 2x10x16 ft. beam and tweaked it.

My pain is located in the center of my lower back about where the sacrum lies. With pain radiating down my right leg. I feel pain when I stand and while stationary in a seated position.

To treat my back so far I have taken a hot shower (not too hot). My wife assisted me staying upright. I've stretched it out as best I can and my wife rubbed my back a bit. I've taken one pill of Flexeril.

Is there anything else I can do at home?
