Thanks for writing to us.
Your husband is suffering from disc prolapse which is causing a nerve root compression. In addition to the pain killers that he is already taking, he needs to have a good muscle relaxant like thiocolchicoside and methylcobalamin supplements for improvement of symptoms related to the nerves.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Welcome to Healthcare magic forum,
Lumbar disc prolapse needs following precautions:

Avoid riding two wheeler.
Dont lift heavy weight.
Sleep on hard mattress and on ur back and side, dont sleep in ur abdomen since the muscles will get more strained.
Avoid sudden bending and turning.
Take hot fomentation daily twice.
Sit in a proper potion, dont hunch back when u sit.
U can wear LS belt while travelling.
Consult ortho specialist for further treatment.
Hope I have answered ur question,
