I pulled a muscle about 4 months ago in my back, and I went to physical therapy. They gave me some stretches, but it`s still not better. I try to stretch my hammys out daily and put a heat pack on it, but my back still feels tight. What do you suggest? Anything would help at this point.

Treating a Sore Back

If you pull a back muscle and it's still not better after several months of stretching exercise, it's time to go back to physical therapy and see if they can offer something else. You might also consider seeing a chiropractor who works with athletes. Acupuncture often relieves the pain, which can help healing. If you smoke, quit, as smoking interferes with circulation. It's may also be helpful to limit saturated fat intake, if you eat a lot of meat.
