Brief Answer:
You may add muscle relaxant drugs

Detailed Answer:
Hello
It's good to see you
You may add muscle relaxant drugs like Thiocolchicoside and continue to take the other medicine as usual along with pain killer if required. Since, Thiocolchicoside is prescription only drug you may have to visit a local doctor.
All the best for your journey.
Take care
