This tear could have been caused by severe degenerative osteoarthritis
of the spine. The herniated disc
could cause pressure on your nerves and hence pain. If muscle weakness
of the legs develop you will need surgical decompression of that part of the spine. Till then you may be managed on pain killers and muscle relaxants. Avoid lifting heavy weights. Avoid forward bending as much as possible. Physiotherapy
can help a lot in relieving the pain.
