Hi,

You can have compressive symptoms due to a spinal problem. For that you need a surgical management for cure.

Until then you can be prescribed non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs. Physiotherapy also beneficial in such case. Avoid strenuous activities and heavy weight lifting.

I suggest you consult an orthopedic surgeon for examination and further management.

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

Regards,
