Suffering from lower back pain. X-ray ruled out disc problems. Causes and cure?

Hello Dr. I have been having lower back pain for a while now. I did visit couple of orthopaedic doctors in , which did an Xray and ruled out any disc problem. They did say it is posture related. The pain is not very high, however it is consistent and very annoying. The medication and the gel/oil/physiotheraphy has not given me any relief.

Welcome to the forum.
According to the discription the back pain could be part of a mechanical back pain complex of symptoms. This mechanical back pain is caused due to bad posture at work, long work-hours in particular position, lack of proper sleep or healthy diet as well.
I suggest you to try back strengthening exercises by extension of the back muscles which can be taught by your Orthopedician or Physiotherapist. This will help to relieve the possible muscle spasm which causes the pain.MRI can be taken in case you have any nerve compression symptoms or as deemed necessary by your Orthopedician.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you
