Hello,
there are so many reasons of backache as muscle injury,ligament injury,nerve compression,disc prolapse.but the treatments are limited as surgical and non surgical treatment.
Non surgical treatment: Non surgical treatments are temporary treatments includes spinal extension exercises,stretching and hot/cold water fomentation.if there is pain no swelling then apply hot water fomentation every 4 hrs.hot water fomentation reduces the muscle spasm and increases the blood circulation.epidural steroid injections.you can take NSAIDs as tablet ibuprofen or naproxen,acetaminophen can give temperory relief.
Non surgical treatment: if there is nerve compression and disc prolapse then the surgery is the only way to get permanent relief.
but to find out the exact cause of pain get some investigation like MRI and consult with ortho.
