if its an acute pain the following would help:
1 bed rest (supine) for 3 days.
2. short course of medicines like aceclofenac ,serratiopeptidase and pregabalin for5 days
3. take a month course of vitamin B 12 supplements
always avoid forward bending.
if your pain still persists you shall have to get an MRI lumbo sacral spine done. Thanks.
