Chronic pain in lower back, lumbar L5 spondylosis. Doing exercises provides relief. Permanent cure?

I face pain at my lower back since last 10 years. I consusted with doctor and he explained the pain is causing due to lumber L5 spondylosis and therefore, he suggested some exercises. I practice those mostly and I feel good. But once I stop doing these, I feel the pain. Is there any permanent way out to recover completely from the pain in such case ?

Thanks for writing to us.
Doing regular exercise is the best way to keep your spine flexible and retard the further progression of spondylottic changes of the spine. For the short term relief, muscle relaxants and pain killers will help you.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
