Thanks for writing to us.
The lower back pain due to acquired sacralization of lumbar vertebra needs muscle relaxants for pain relief. It is best to get an MRI scan done to find out the degree of affection of the nerve roots due to the fusion. Regular physiotherapy can delay the further progression.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
