Hello and thanks for posting the query
You are following a right schedule to get cure from the pain. The only change that can help you is do hot fermentation instead of Ice fermentation. Do not wear weight till the pain subsides. If your pain does not subsided in 2-3 days than you have to do your X-ray lumber spine done to rule out any fracture. Use hard bed to sleep and for slight movements wear lumber belt to stabilize the spine.
Hope this will help you.
Best Wishes

Spine Surgeon Dr. Rahul D Chaudhari's  Response
Thanks for the query. Usually back injury involves injury to back muscles. Bed rest and medicine with local measures help. You are taking the right treatment. I would suggest to take sufficient rest depending upon your pain (few days). Avoid prolong sitting, long drive and lifting heavy things. I hope you will recover I next few days. If pain persist or worsen in spite of all these measures then get spine X-rays just to rule out bony injury. Thanks.
