These medications are generally used for short term in cases like yours, so may not have serious or permanent side effects. But long term use can cause side effects.

Most cases of backache improve with such conservative treatment in few weeks.However if symptoms persist then more aggressive and sometimes invasive treatments would be needed.

Hope that answers your question.
