thank you for choosing healthcare magic,
your back pain is probably due to narrowed spinal canal or slipped disc.it is wise to be treated medically first.for pain, you may use naproxen or ibuprofen for 10-15 days.also try gabapentin(300mg),pregabalin (75mg) for neuralgic pain.Do a x ray of dorso lumber spine and if possible MRI of dorso lumber spine. it will provide information regarding present condition and extent of lesion.
