Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
All the findings in the description suggests DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE
. There is no way to cure the degenerative process completely but the symptoms arising out of the problem can be treated effectively.
The conservative management for the above problem is as follows -
Rest: Avoid lifting heavy weights and forward bending movements
are needed in the acute phase. Muscle relaxants are essential for relieving muscle spasms which generally follows acute pain.
Pelvic traction: may enlarge the disc space, permitting the prolapse to subside.
Physiotherapy: Once the acute phase of pain has subsided, Isometric strengthening exercises of the paravertebral muscles are started. Moist heat can be useful
If the symptoms do not resolve with the above measures, consult an orthosurgeon and follow his advice.
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
