U hav lots t do. Pain management is useful if it helps you to move normally while you heal. If you smoke, you must stop. What ever type of activity/lifestyle produces the damage to your back must be modified. Physical therapy for a core strengthening, yoga type stretching home exercise program that incorporates proper breathing and body awareness is the pathway that I have seen the most success. Patience!
Try Pt. See your orthopaedic spinal specialist and get involved in a course of phsyical therapy and antiinflammatory medications.
