Thanks for your query.

Prolong sitting will result in damage to the ligaments and the bones in the spine leading to severe pain and fusion of the spine vertebral bones resulting in spondylosis.

Best method to avoid spondylosis by exercise, physiotherapy and limiting the hours of prolonged sitting.

Treating with ultrsounds and electromagnets is a modality in physiotherapy , which are very safe and surely provide relief on long term management.I do recommend you to proceed for such a treatment without any fear.

Also I suggest you to wear a LUMBOSACRAL Spine Belt , this will stabilize the spine and reduce the damage and pain.

If pain is too severe for emergency and immediate relief do apply DICLOFENAC gel over the affected area.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
