Medication like methylcobalamine with muscle relaxant and analgesic will reduce pain, you can take them consulting your treating doctor. You may consult physiotherapist for further guidance. He may start TENS ,or ultrasound which is helpful in your case. You may need to take rest for early healing.
Continue your medication till time. Also check your vit B12 and vit D3 in your blood.
