I have read your query.

You should do regular back strengthening exercises as uploaded on you tube.

- Avoid heavy weight lifting pushing and pulling heavy objects, because it will further increase back pain.

- You can take medicine like painkillers + muscle relaxants by discussing it with your doctor. You may need stronger pain-killers which are available on prescription only. You can try ibuprofen or naproxen till you see your doctor.

- Apply hot packs for 30 min in morning and evening.

In future if you wish to contact me directly, you can use the below mentioned link:

I hope it helps.
