Thanks for posting your query.

You are suffering from PIVD.

Yes, It is curable by physiotherapy in initial cases. Avoid forward bending.

If the symptoms persist , you can talk to your doctor for surgery that is disectomy.

In case if you have no further queries, you can close the discussion, rate it and give your reviews.
