In brief: I

I recommend: 1.
Rest, getting help with your brother and taking anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen. 2. If the pain does not improve over the next couple weeks, you should follow-up with your doctor and consider physical therapy or chiropractic treatments. 3. If the pain still does not improve then you should see a spine specialist for consideration for interventional injection treatments. Good luck!
