Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your condition and that you are in lot of pain. You can try thoraco-lumbar corsets to help with pain and movement.  Cervical collars may also help. You’ll need pain relief medications. You should ideally take a combination of a short acting and a long acting pain relief medication, which also has a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. Pain medication patches are also available—ask your doctor about these. Take care!
