I'm not really sure how that would do much good, since rubbing alcohol would really only cool the skin and back pains are typically muscular or spinal in nature. You might be better off with heat and massage.

Can you drink rubbing alcohol?

NO! Rubbing alcohol is actually "wood alcohol". [Wood alcohol is Methanol, not Isporpyl Alcohol, which is what is typically considered "rubbing alcohol"]. Not at all the same as "grain alcohol" which is what is in alcoholic beverages. Wood alcohol can cause blindness or even death. Bad idea. You can have HORRIBLE intestinal pains, liver damage, other physical problems then probably a slow, horrible death.ALSOIf you do some research you will find that one of the components that Isopropyl alcohol breaks down into is acetone in your body, essentially you are drinking a poison which turns into a different poison (fingernail polish remover). You will have severe gastric distress with comsumption which will not be at all a pleasant experience.The LD50 for isopropanol is around 15 grammes for a 70kg adult. It's metabolised to acetone, which is, however, only mildly poisonous, so i don't know why it's as toxic as it is. It's not wood alcohol, which is methanol, but is made using sulphuric acid and the petrochemical propene, a gas.AnswerRubbing alcohol is not wood alcohol, or methanol (which makes you blind at 10mL and dead at 30mL). It is simply an alcohol that is vaporized at a higher temperature than ethanol or drinking alcohol. It is not safe to drink by any means, but you dont need sulphuric acid to make it, or petrochemical propane. It can be produced by vaporizing a fermented alcohol at above 82oC. As said before, it can kill you or cause heavy liver damage. dont do it!
