You can consult an orthopaedic surgeon for a nerve block. Physiotherapy and dry needling can will alleviate your pain and inflammation. You can ask your pharmacist for Transact patches. These patches release anti-inflammatories through the skin into the area where inflammation occurs.

you could well benefit from a few physiotherapy treatments. Make sure you go to a registered physiotherapist. They can work wonders and can advise what exercises you could to prevent any future back problems.
