Hello Amit and welcome to HCM
According to the report you are suffering from PIVD (Prolapsed Inter vertebral Disc). To get rid from this problem you can go for either medication with physiotherapy or Surgery. Decision for the surgery is to be taken by your doctor with relation to clinical examination. Consult your doctor and go for proper treatment. Till that follow some precautions:
1. Avoid jerky movements of spine.
2. Wear LS belt while traveling or driving.
3. Take complete bed rest.
4. Do regular spine exercise as advised by your physiotherapy.
5. Use hard bed to sleep.
6. Take some analgesic and apply diclo gel locally in pain.
Hope this will help you.
Best wishes
