Using a belt around your waist takes away the muscle strength you had built up by exercises. Instead start with gradual exercises again. Take care of postures. Hot fomentations and nerve vitamins might help with the pain. Walking is the best proven exercise.
Hello..... If there is inflammation of joint it should be shown by MRI, You may need physiotherapy for pain... Don't carry heavy weights, don't sit in crooked posture, it puts more pressure on back.. Consult orthopedic surgeon with report..Doctor will do the needful....
