I have had a swollen back for a while since

Patient : I have had a swollen back for a while since falling off a horse but although the swelling hasn't gone down the pain subsided, a long shift at work however has made it flare up as it got increasingly stiff. Usually if I lie on the floor and crack my lower back it eases. So naturally that's what I did but it didn't crack and is becoming increasingly more and more painful and the pain every now and again radiates into my leg or my leg has a numb feeling to it. I have also noticed that a section of my back is fully numb (about 3 inches worth in the lower middle half of my back. Is there any way I can ease the pain from this without physio therapy because have had bad experiences in the past with using this treatment.
