Thanks for the query

I understand your concern
Your husband has lumbo-sacral disc problem. Your doctor has advised physiotherapy for strengthening the back muscles. He needs about a week of supervised physiotherapy which help him a lot. If you have financial problem, you can do it in a public scetor/govt hospital. Medications that help are gabapentine, pregabaline along with the advuice given by your physiotherapist
Please get back if you need any additional information
