Does gentle traction help? You can apply it by hanging from something... like a chin-up bar in a doorway or a tree branch at an appropriate height.

If that provides some relief, let me know and I'll tell you about a home traction device that I've used. (Iso-trac - no longer sold, but easy to make.)
