In brief: NSAID's and P.T.

Avoid activities that provoke the pain; sitting is commonly a problem. Anti-inflammatory medication or a brief course of steroids may be helpful.
Physical therapy may be helpful. Epidural steroid injections are commonly used and may provide temporary relief, but they are expensive and rarely provide a definitive treatment.

There are also medicines to help with back pain, neuropathic pain- have you used any medicines in the past?
