All your queries can be answered once you get MRI of lumbosacral spine done, Since Mri can give the exact information, how much the spinal cord is getting compressed, & what type of exercises can help you the most
To decide future course your detailed investigative reports are a must. But you problem can be solved in Ayurveda with the help of procedure Kati vasti inwhich herbal medicated oil is kept over affected area and repeated sittings are given for that.
Dr. Rajesh Lakhanpaul
your back pain can be reduced by regular exercises if you have no any neurological deficit. since the space is reduced your disc might be degenerated and if it is extruded into the spinal canal it can result in neurological deficits . so get evaluated clinically and radiologically (MRI scan) and decide about the treatment part.
