HelloYou can not get treatment on line.First you need to know what the pain is.As yo describe it, this can be a lower spine disc problem.Unless there was surgical damage to the muscle.You need to see an orthopedist at this point, your GP will have to refer you.You can not get pain medications on line: illegal.If this is a spinal disc problem, you need testing and immediate therapy to stop it from progressing and to avoid surgery.Yes, it is possible to facilitate better waling with physiotherapy.
