1. Continue to do what you are doing, which apparently hasn't helped and may actually be making the problem worse.
2. Take OTC pain medication, even natural sources (CBD, Tumeric, HP remedies, etc.) which will not correct the underlying cause. Drugs also come with side effects which can cause even more symptoms.
3. See a primary care physician (MD, DO, DC) to determine the cause and recommended treatment.
Research has shown that chiropractic treatment gives better outcomes for most back pain and does not include drugs or surgery, so it would, in my opinion, be the best alternative to seek help initially.
