Been suffering from lumbar disc prolapse. Solution for pain?

Dear Dr, i have been suffering from lumbar disc prolapse at L4 level since 6 years. i have taken bedrest , traction and ayurveda treatment at that time and got good relief. but i find it difficult to walk for long time, or do any kind of exercise as a result of which i have gained weight. i get spasms in my back on and off especially before periods but this is relieved with rest. Is there any solution for this pain?

Hi, welcome to HCM
Lumbar disc prolapse is painful condition. There are few options for treatment as physiotherapy, operation or ozone thepary.
Every option depends on degree of prolapse of disc. In severe condition operation can be done.
You have to do MRI and than consult your doctor than decide.
Dont do unguided exercise , it will harm you.
Thanking you.
