Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Hi, get MRI of LS spine to rule out Disc prolapse or spinal canal stenosis. If ortho problem is ruled out consult a gynecologist as there are numerous causes for low back ache apart from ortho. Continue with spinal extension exercises and precautions while banding forward and lifting heavy objects.
