Welcome to HCM

The backache you are having is not due to the kidneys but its neurological which is due to damage to your lumbar or sacral vertebrae that have resulted in the care accident. The pain is radiating forward along the sciatic nerve. It is due to the compression on the nerve roots due to disc problem

It is recommended to consult neurologist for better management however you can use diclofenic sodium along with vitamin B complex on the counter drugs for symptoms.

Naturopathy & Yoga Specialist Dr. Ambika Murali Krishnan's  Response
Radiating pain from the right lower back might be due to the compression of lumbar spinal nerves so you need an examination by doctor. consult an orthopedic Dr for x ray and MRI scan of your lumbar spine after the conformation reports you strictly follow your dr's advice and do follow the exercises regularly.
Hope this answers your query if any more clarifications keep posting.
Take care
Wish you speedy recovery.
