Hello !
Thank your for the question ! I understand your concern.
I would recommend bed rest , use of heat procedures in the lumbar region during the pain. You should also take also inflammatory drugs during pain like Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen + codeine, Diclofenac or Ketoprofen etc, for some days.
I would also recommend a lumbar brace to be held for some time .
You should avoid holding heavy things , staying for a long time sitting on a desk .
Finally if the pain persists or interferes most of the time in your every day life, you should be seen by a spinal surgeon , to rule out a probable intervention . It will be certainly based on your spine CTscan and your clinical examination.
I wish to have been helpful to you
