Hello, I came for help with a snail?

Iíve been searching the web and it seems there isnít any info I can find on aquarium snails involvingÖ well it seems my ramshorn snailís shell is too big for it? It can barely move or hold itself upright, and it seems to pull out of the shell in an uncomfortable way when it tries to climb. Iíve put it in a shallow Tupperware container with no substrate and gave it an algae wafer to make it easier for it but I donít know how to help the poor thing. The only thing Iíve found so far is treating it as if it had torn a muscle and helping it with natural oils that are antibacterial and anti inflammatory but I donít know enough about it and certainly donít want to make it worse. Any advice?
