Thanks for writing to us.
Your wife has a degenerative disc disease with nerve root compression. Conservative treatment involves rest, pain killers, muscle relaxants, and regular physiotherapy. Ayurveda experts can also control the pain effectively. YOu can consult an expert for the same.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
