Severe cramping 9 months

Ive had severe back pain for over 9 months now, bacically since my 18th birthday to the point where i found it hard to walk. Recently ive been to see a top back specialist and he found out that my lower back pain was caused by a twister vertebrae in the middle of my back causing a knock on effect to my lower back due to the tightness caused around it. He used acupuncture to straighten it out and initially it all felt ALOT better. This said after a week the pain changed and i have been getting very very tight and painful to press muscles at the centre of my back. The back back specialst reassures me that it will just take time for the cramping to dissipate but is there anything i can do in the meantime to reduce the cramping of muscles? ive recently been trying to use a tennis ball on it, rolling against the wall.

Any advice would be much apprecated!
